5 Tips for Choosing “The Right” Twitter Name

Apart from your Twitter avatar, what would influence your choice of people to follow on Twitter? How many Twitter users have you unfollowed due to their user names? What is the best method for companies to benefit from Twitter user names?

So what’s all the fuss about?

“No one cares anyway”… Right? Wrong! Take a look at the following comments:

@Kurd said “I have blocked people before based solely on their avatar or name, if it was offensive enough. Or if I’m following someone with, say, a puppy avatar with the user name “ILoveLife” but at some point they’ve changed their avatar and name to a spread-eagle model named “SexFrosting.”

I’m sure many of you out there would agree to what this gentleman had to say, and I’m 100% percent certain that you’ll have one story or another about bad or annoying experiences with at least one of your followers’ user names!

First Impression Matters :)

But what defines a “good” Twitter user name?

Based on many encounters with a bunch of followers and my own experience, I can safely say that one or more of the following characteristics define a good Twitter user name:

  1. It Should Be Real: If your Twitter user name is your real name, people would feel more comfortable following you on Twitter because you are less likely to be a spammer!
  2. It Should Describe You: So, you don’t want to use your real name? It’s not a problem as long as you use one which describes who you are, what you do and what tweets your followers should expect from you!
  3. It Should Be Short: The shorter, the better, since this makes it easier for your followers to retweet your tweets and mention you.
  4. It Should Be Unique: “@Puppylover”, “@Doglover” and “@Lovespuppies” are not that unique! You want to use a user name that will be remembered!
  5. It Should Be Sincere: If you are not a guru, don’t claim to be one in your user name! This applies to everything else ranging from claiming to be a doctor to claiming to be an active tweep!

** Avoid: Offensive names, celebrity names, bot-like names and too many numbers and/or symbols in your user name. Continue reading »
