How Do You Change Your Twitter Name?

To change your Twitter username, log into your Twitter account. Open the account settings. Locate and adjust the username associated with your Twitter account from this screen.

  1. Open Twitter in your Web browser

    Launch any Web browser on your computer. Enter "" into the address bar of your browser, and press the Enter key.

  2. Provide your login information

    Click the Sign in button in the upper-right corner of the web page. Enter your current Twitter username and password, and click the Log in button.

  3. View your account settings

    Find your profile icon in the upper-right corner of the Web page. If you have uploaded a profile picture, it appears as that picture. Click on the icon, and select Settings from the dropdown menu.
