How do I change my Periscope name on Twitter?

Answered by Robert Dupre

To change your Periscope name on Twitter, you can follow these steps:

1. Log in to your Twitter account on the web.
2. Click on your profile photo thumbnail, usually located at the top right corner of the page.
3. From the dropdown menu, select “View Profile.” This will take you to your Twitter profile.
4. On your profile page, click the “Edit Profile” button. It is usually located next to your profile photo.
5. In the “Edit Profile” section, you will see various fields that you can edit, including your display name.
6. Locate the display name field and type in your new desired Periscope name.
7. As you type, Twitter will check the availability of the name and show you if it’s already taken.
8. Once you have entered your new display name, click the “Save Profile” button to save your changes.

It’s important to note that changing your display name on Twitter will also change your Periscope name, as they are linked. Your new display name will be reflected on both platforms.

While changing your name, you might want to consider a few things. First, choose a name that represents you well and is memorable. It’s best to avoid using personal information or any offensive or inappropriate terms. Additionally, keep in mind that once you change your display name, it may take some time for others to recognize and adapt to the new name.

In my personal experience, I have changed my display name on Twitter a few times to align it with my evolving interests and online presence. Each time, the process was straightforward, and the new name was updated across both Twitter and Periscope seamlessly.

By following these steps, you should be able to change your Periscope name on Twitter without any issues.
