So there’s this thing people have been doing for some time now; Twiddling. Wait, no. Twittering? No, that’s not right either but I think I’m getting closer. Twitting? No. Tweeting! That’s it!
There is a website called Twitter where people post updates on their lives, random thoughts and so on, also known in the Twitter world as “tweeting.” Sounds like a bird, you say? Well great, because that’s the logo, a bird.
I’m signing up for one of these Twitter accounts, but I stumble upon a step in the process that has my feathers all ruffled: Choosing my username, or “handle.”
A username is not just a username, it’s kinda a big deal. This is how my internet presence will be known. It has to sound cool, you know, because I’m so dope and stuff. When it comes to dope Twitter names, many Twitter name ideas come to mind. But first, let’s go over a few tips.
Twitter Name Ideas
When it comes to the Twitter name ideas listed below, it's likely that many of these, if not all, will already be taken.. These are for informational and inspirational purposes only to help you brainstorm your own, unique, dope Twitter names.

Tips for Making a Kickass Twitter Name
- Unless you are trying to mask your real identity or are running from the poe-poes (in which case, you really shouldn’t create a Twitter account) your handle should reflect your real identity. I.e. Using your first and/or last name in your username will help others to find you, or “follow,” you on Twitter.
- Use underscores, You can only use a combination of letters and numbers in your username, with one exception, the underscore. This_can_save_u (This example technically meets Twitter username criteria.)
- As in the example above, using underscores to separate words can mean the difference between someone being able to read your name or not (in which case, they probably shouldn’t be using Twitter.) Say your nickname is Thumper, see the following example: Butthumper.. But_Thumper. You see?
- If you have a common name, thank your sweet parents for making your life 100 times harder for any account you ever have to sign up for. If this is your case, use cool and clever adjectives in your dope Twitter name that describe you well.
- The shorter, the better (said no hot chick, ever, except for on Twitter). But really, Twitter limits the amount of characters someone can use, so if they are tweeting to you and your name is @15 characters long, this takes away from their limit of 140 characters.
- If you are using Twitter for business purposes, use your business name in your Twitter handle. Having a business twitter name will help you reach your clients.
Tips if Your Name is Taken
- Add x’s, o’s, and/or numbers in different places in the words. Some letters can be replaced with numbers and will still read the same. For example, you can use the number one instead of the letter i or l, the number zero instead of the letter o, and so forth.
- Zip codes, area codes, birthdays and important dates can all help with making a name unique if the original username you wanted is taken.
- Twist up the spelling of a word so that it is pronounced the same but spelled differently. Example: Light/Lite.
- Try different placements of the underscore, or remove underscores. Adjoin two words, but capitalize the first letter of the second word so it stands out as its own word.
Changing Your Twitter Name
Still not sure on a Twitter usename? No problem!
Twitter allows you to change your twitter handle whenever you want, without you losing followers!
So if you're not certain you love a name, try it on for size and see if you like it. If you don't, swap it out for one even more awesome!
Get Ready to Tweet!
With all of the combinations of letters and numbers that can be used in the 15 character limit, there is an unlimited possibility of Twitter usernames to choose from, aside from the ones already taken, of course.
If all else fails, just try a different name as you are bound to find something that works for you. Once you get something that is finally available and totally dope, #carryon!
