How do I change my name on Twitter

I get this question many times, so I thought better document it.

a) Login to your twitter account from the twitter website (

b) Once logged in, click on your name, displayed on the top right corner and select Settings

c)This would take you to your Account settings page. Change the value in the Username field to the new username you prefer.

d) Scroll down and click on Save. You have now successfully changed your username.

Notes: After changing your username
All your tweets will be intact.
All your followers will be intact.
All the people you follow will be intact too.

Hope this helps you. Please feel free to leave a comment if this helped you.

Few Lessons for Life…

Writing after a gap of more than 7 months. Life,Work and Travel has kept me busy. It’s good to be back and continuing from were I left…

Some stories I have read/heard from various places/people. Don’t know the real authors. Just sharing them…

Story 2All are significant

During my second month of management school, our professor gave us an exam. I breezed through the questions, until I read the last one: "What is the first name of the woman who cleans the school?"

Surely this was some kind of joke. I had seen the cleaning woman several times. She was thin, dark-haired and in her 40s, but how would I know her name? I never felt a need to interact with her. I handed in my paper, leaving the last question blank. Just before class ended, one student asked if the last question would count toward our exam grade.

"Absolutely," said the professor. "In your life and careers, you will meet many people. All are significant.

They deserve your attention and care, even if all you do is smile and say 'Hello, How are you doing'."

I've never forgotten that lesson. I also found out her name was Uma.
