How to Change Your Twitter Username

There might be various reasons why you may want to change name on Twitter. However, whatever is the reason, this is a very simple process and can be done in just seconds.

Twitter username and display name are not the same things. Your username is your unique Twitter handle, the name that appears in your profile URL and allows you to log in, reply to tweets, and direct message others (it’s the name that follows the @ symbol).

Your display name, on the other hand, appears above your username on your profile page and is likely the name that most users will recognize you by.
