If you want to change your Twitter username or handle, this article will help you. Twitter allows users to change the username from the web version as well as the mobile app. You can find the web version steps in this article, and for that, no additional service is required.
Twitter is one of the best micro-blogging platforms where you can publish your thoughts and daily news. Let’s assume that you have an account, but the username has a spelling mistake. Alternatively, let’s take that you have created an account for the first time, and you do not like the given username. Or, maybe you have changed the business name, and you want to make the same change on Twitter as well. At such times, you can follow these steps to change the username of your Twitter account.
Please note that Twitter assigns a user ID for each user, and it is generally a number containing some digits only. Even if you change the username (@yourname), the user ID doesn’t change.
