Thanks Daniel,

Make people aware by repeated action is very important. “Conditioning” their mind.

Nice tips.

Daniel, You are so right about "conditioning" people to know your Twitter handle.

A conundrum when switching is some people's names are really hard to remember, yet a simple Twitter handle is often easier & catchier to recall. Yet we we often tweet things not related to a "business", but of who we are on a wider scale. No-one is single-dimensional… How to accommodate?! It is not an easy question or answer, huh? The broader question of Twitter handle AND then how to successfully transition…

Great article, Daniel! Since changing your username also changes your URL, I don't think Twitter could do anything about it.

Unfortunately, you're right. Unless it would automatically set-up a redirect to your new URL (for a certain period of time), and block off that username for a while.

Thanks for the comment Cendrine!

My pleasure Keri!

Twitter just makes it so easy to change your name, that people don't think of the ramifications, haha :P
