You will now be prompted to enter your Twitter account password for security reasons. Enter your ‘password’ and click > “Username”.

How to check Twitter username availability?
Follow the methods below to verify the username:

You can also check username availability in this username checker tool.
[The tool here is not an official tool of Twitter rather it suggests having a 10 characters username and checks if it is already available or not, through the algorithmic system]
Let’s follow the guide for this:
Step 1: Open the “Twitter Username Checker” tool.
In Google, search > Tools “Twitter Username Availability Checker” and hit the search button.
The next moment, you will find all the popular control tools on the screen.
Select any one, depending on your choice, because each control tool works more or less in the same way and would give the best result. Then choose any one and open the site.
Well, many of the tools are open source, so there is no need to “register”, however, if a monitoring tool asks you to register, you must register to use it.
Do the necessary and go to the home page of the username verification tool.
Step 2: Enter your desired username and search
Now, to check the availability of the desired username, you need to add it to the tool. For this, there will be some option or space where you will be asked to enter the desired username and press the “search” or “verify” button.
In a while, the tool will tell you the result.
Step 3: See if it’s available for use
Some of the verification tools will provide the result in the form of a “percentage” and others in the form of a “Note”, saying: “Available or not available”.
Based on the result, check and use the username.
If the username you want to have for your Twitter account is “Available”, you can go and change the username on your Twitter.
2. From your “Username” section:
On Twitter, you have the option to check the availability of a username in the account section.
Checking the availability on the platform itself is the most useful way. Let’s learn how to check “Twitter Username Availability” on Twitter:
Step 1: Open “Twitter.com” > More
On your PC or laptop, open your web browser and search for the official Twitter website. For reference, you can go to the given link: https://twitter.com/login
Open the Twitter website and log in to your account using the advantageous login method.
After logging in, when you get to the home page, you will see the posts in the center of the screen and on the left side you will find a list of options.
From that list of options, click > “More.”
[However, if you have logged in to your account using your mobile device, then you would not directly find the > “More” option on the screen. For that, you have to click on the “Username” icon on the left side of the screen.
The ‘username icon’ will display the “initial letter” of your username with color in a circular shape.
Click on the “Username” icon and the options list will come on the screen. From there, select > “More”.]
Step 2: Click “Settings and Privacy”
Clicking > the “More” option will bring up another list of options on the screen.
There, select > “Settings and privacy”.
In the “Settings and privacy” section there will be options to check the availability of the username and also change the username.
Step 3: “Your Account” > “Account Information”
After you get to the “Settings and privacy” tab, in the “Settings” section, you will see the first option as > “Your account”.
Click on “Your Account” and on the other side of the screen, which is on the right, you will see some options. Click > “Account Information” and you will find all the information related to your Twitter account and settings on the screen.
For the username job, you need to go to the ‘username’ section.
Step 4: Enter your password and click “Username”
When you click > “Account Information”, Twitter will ask you to enter the “Password” for your account.
Enter your ‘Password’ correctly and click > “Confirm”.
However, if you don’t know the password or can’t remember it, there is nothing to worry about, just click “Forgot your password?” and enter your linked phone number or email address. In a few seconds you will receive a “verification code”, enter that code and create a new password.
Then, go back to Twitter and enter the “Password”.
After entering the password, select > “Username”.
In the list of “Account Information” options, “Username” is at the top. Click and open the tab.
Step 5: Type in your desired username and check availability
Now, in the “Username” box, type in your desired username and check availability. Availability will be displayed just below the username box, in the “suggestions” section.
Also, Twitter will suggest the available username similar to the username you entered in the box.
So if you do not find the availability of the desired username, you can choose something similar from the suggestions.
That is all. This way you can check the availability of the username.
🔯 Can you get someone else’s Twitter username?
YES. You can get someone else’s Twitter username. But for that, you need to ask that person to leave you that username.
Leaving the username means that they have to change their username so that you can use that username for your Twitter account.
Additionally, they may ask you to pay a few bucks or dollars for providing their username.
