    Hi,

    I have a twitter account and with a good name but regisitered a better name on another account so no one will take it and i could use it when i was ready, now im ready to use it,

    My question is this, if i change my username on the account i want will my old username be available to anyone else to use? or do they get deleted?

    I basically wanna swap the names over as i dont want to lose any of the names

    i think when you change your username the old one just becomes available..

    I would use a 3rd account.. change the first account to a random name.. then quickly swap name 1st to 3rd, then 2nd to 1st, then 3rd to 2nd that way it won't be available long enough for someone to take it & you get to keep both usernames.

    Ok update: I done it and it works, just did it real quick, so if you change your username the old one goes immediately up for grabs again!
