How to Swap Twitter User Names

A number of you have recently asked me how I actually swapped my usernames on Twitter in my recent Twitter-consolidation and retirement.

It was actually quite easy:

  1. Open 2 different browsers (I used Chrome and Safari)
  2. Login to each account.
  3. Change the name of Account A. Save.
  4. Change the name of Account B to Account A. Save.
  5. Confirm changes via email.

And enjoy! I was a bit nervous while doing it but it worked like a charm.
