This short video takes you through the simple 4 step process I used to change my Twitter name without losing any followers or other profile settings.
It's very easy to change your Twitter name. You can do it through the settings area of your profile. But WAIT! If you just switch your name to something new, what happens when someone makes contact with you using your old name? They may not realise you've changed your name. The problem is, you won't receive the message -- it will be lost because your old username account no longer exists and that person will never know. What if someone follows you using your old name? They may have received a recommendation to follow you but they won't know you've moved your profile. You could lose countless opportunities to engage with others interested in your product or service!
This foolproof strategy takes 5 minutes and is the smartest way to switch usernames while retaining your profile, followers, lists, favourites and other settings. Watch the video to see how to do it...
