    As title says, some idiot is inactively using a twitter username which I need for my business.

    I am willing to pay for someone to somehow remove this inactive person's username from twitter so I can rightfully use my brands username.

    Please post below or PM me, thanks.

    P.S - Looking to get it done ASAP.

    you should be able to report it to twitter, and say that they are name squatting if the user is not active.

    "Using a company or business name, logo, or other trademark-protected materials in a manner that may mislead or confuse others with regard to its brand or business affiliation may be considered a trademark policy violation."

    If the account is non-active, it can't mislead or confuse others and "Twitter usernames are provided on a first-come, first-served basis and may not be reserved."

    so it can be that twitter will do nothing about it, nevertheless it's worth a try

    Why don't you offer that user some money and take the username!

    Twitter is an absolute nightmare to get in touch with, been trying for over a week now.

    Can anyone help?

    You can't remove an account so easily! Maybe there are people who can do this! Search on google: hackforums and it will be the first page!
    This is some rathole with stinky hackers! Maybe you find something here! But look out with these dudes, you might got hacked when going to deep with these people! They hack you when having a talk on skype or whatever!

    By the way, when i redt ''remove'' i thought of hacking that's why this answer!

    You can not do anything except try to contact both the Twitter Adm and the owner of that inactive account.

    Yeah, unless there's a trademark infringement...good luck.

    I tried contacting someone with a Twitter handle I wanted and they replied asking for a huge pile of cash. Grrr.
