    It's 100% impossible. Keep working on another username.

    LOL. I read that when that happened. Not sure why people do such stuff just for a username.

    OP- You may get the username if that's your registered trademark by contacting Twitter. That's the only legal way you can do that.

    Why not just simply ask the user? Send a few messages his/her way and maybe find them on other sites that they are active on that you can contact them on.

    You will have to choose another one. I don't think that it is a big problem that your username will be slightly different.
