I have been sooo frustrated with this, seeing as my desired display name is 21 characters long. I’d like my name to be the same on twitter as everywhere else. I hope the limit changes!

Yes! I hate it because I can’t even use my Twitter for Marketing as JenniferBakes is taken and JenniferBakesBlog is too long. Really frustrating and can’t figure out how to shorten mine either.

The concept of 14 character username really sucks, literally!
They should let the username be long comprising the length of the tweet
160 char = username + tweet length + handler
I want to have exact name of my company @designautomation but that leads to 16 characters just 1 lengthier.

I’m actually deleting all my twitter accounts since i get more “is that the same comany as on facebook?” questions and it’s annoying not just to me but to my clients. I thought twitter would be a business oriented platform but I can’t do business with half my name.

Yes – I work for the American Dairy Goat Association. An an unused account is holding our “ADGA” acronym so we can’t use it as a twitter handle.
