    Your username is separate from your email address, and was set up when you created your account. If you know your personal URL (, then "myname" is your username. But, twitter's login page is smart enough to allow you to log in using EITHER your username or email address.

    I want to keep my twitter account but need to change just the username

    Follow these steps to change your username:
    • Log in to and visit your account settings pages from the dropdown menu in the top right corner.

    • On your account settings page, change the username listed in your username field.

    • If the username is taken, you'll be prompted to choose another one.

    • Click Save changes at the bottom of the page.

    NOTE: Changing your username will not affect your existing followers, direct messages, or @replies. Your followers will simply see a new username next to your profile photo when you update. We suggest you alert your followers before you change your username so they can direct @replies or direct messages to your new username.

    How do I delete a twitter account ?

    How To Deactivate Your Twitter Account

    Deactivating your account permanently removes your profile and information from Twitter. Deactivated profiles will take 30 days to clear from our internal systems. While the deactivation is being completed, usernames or email addresses cannot be used in the creation of a new account. Before you do it, you should know...
    • This is final and permanent.
    • You do not need to deactivate your account to change your username; change it easily and at any time in your account settings.
    • Unless you change your username and email before deactivation, you will not be able to use them on a new account for 30 days.
    • Account restoration is not available at this time.
    To deactivate your account:
    1. Log in to Twitter
    2. Click Settings from the drop-down menu at the top right of your Twitter account.
    3. Click 'deactivate my account' at the bottom of the page (shown below).
    4. Enter your password when prompted.
    5. Verify that you really want to do it and voila, it's done.
    To free up your username or email address before deactivating your account:
    1. Go to your Settings page from the drop-down menu at the top right of your Twitter account.
    2. In the username field, choose a new username (Try adding an underscore or a number to it).
    3. In the email address field, change your email address to a new address you also own.
    4. Confirm the new email address via a link we send to you (very important!).
    5. Proceed with deactivation as listed above. Your email and username will now be free to use on a new account should you choose to sign up again during the 30 day deactivation period.

    Note: we change your settings immediately, and any/all old links appearing in a Google or other search index thus lead to error pages. However, these old links appear because Google and other search engines have cached old content in their search index. Twitter has no control over this, but you can send them a request to take it down.

    Cannot get or send email on iphone. I get error message: username or password for incorrect. I deleted my account to set it up again. Now it won't allow me to set up account. Get same...

    If the Apple email server was having a problem for a short period of time, this could have been the result, an error message about failing to be able to log you in. In which case waiting a short while and trying again, or trying from a different device (like a computer) to check would have been a good course of action ...
    Usually if you have an email "address," meaning a username with an email provider, and you delete the entire account, they will not allow you to choose the same username again, it's gone forever.
    If your email account is permanently deleted, can you set up a new one with a different, unique username?

    Good luck!

    Twitter Error Message

    Twitter limit's how many people you can follow at a certain time, to help limit spam accounts. You may be able to contact Twitter Support or wait a day or two and see if it changes.
