Down the left hand side of the page will be a list of tabs. Click on “Account”. It might already be select­ed.

3. Enter a new username

Look for the “User­name” field at the top of the page. Type in a new user­name.

If you enter a user­name already in use, Twit­ter will tell you before you save your changes.

If you enter a user­name that isn’t in use, Twit­ter will tell you it’s avail­able.

4. Click “Save changes”

All that’s left now is for you to save your changes by click­ing on the blue but­ton at the bot­tom of the screen.

That’s it. How to change your Twit­ter user­name in just 4 sim­ple steps.
