I recently decided to join Twitter in order to be more in touch with the publishing world, and to find out about any potential internships, jobs and opportunities.
Here is what I learnt whilst creating my account.
1. Any/all forms of your name may already be taken.
I don’t know how I didn’t see this coming. After testing every single form of my name, including ridiculous ones I would never actually use, I found that even the username ‘alreadytaken’ is already taken.
It was a long and winding process (especially because I started testing random usernames halfway through) and it made me really annoyed at the people who’d stolen my potential usernames but hadn’t tweeted a thing in seven years, but I eventually settled for one that vaguely captures what I do.
