Twitter has become insanely popular over the years. Whether you are an individual or business, the platform is a great place for networking and keeping up with your friends.

If you’re new to Twitter, you may notice that it doesn’t look much like other social media platforms. It is a fairly simplified platform, where all posts from people or pages you follow are pretty much displayed in a list.

Because Twitter differs a bit from other social media sites, there may be a few questions about how to navigate the platform. One of the biggest questions is how do you change your username on Twitter. Twitter users actually have two different names that are displayed on the platform. The first one is your unique username, which is the @ name that is specific to you. The other is a display name that is somewhat less important and doesn’t have to be unique.

Whether you need to change your username or are just looking to switch up your display name every now and then, we’ve got you covered here.
