    Hi,
    Im looking at getting a twitter account from someone,
    I was wondering once they send me the password and i change that what else needs doing?
    So they dont take it back in the future?

    It has followers on it already so i dont want to delete the account and quickly re-register it!

    So to change hands of an account what do i need to do to insure its mine and they can never get it back?

    thanks

    Update the email address, that's the main thing, also, get something from seller in writing to your email - just in case there is any future issues:)

    Change the account's password as well as the email password. That could be enough to handle the account by yourself. If you buy from a big and professinal provider, it will be safer.

    Change e-mail, changes password and go to applications and revoke all access.

    ^^ that's why I said, get from them in writing that they are selling you the account (or prob giving to you is better), then if there was a dispute you have some proof.

    You should also check twitter tos regarding account transfer - then you know how to word it to twitter if you have an issue.
