Your username is very important. You have to pick a username that is targeted to your niche. For example, if you are promoting your SEO services and want to drive traffic to your SEO site, you can choose something like seogeeks, SEO company, SEOguru. Few time before, I was very confused with User name. As I have already told that I am very Active and big user of Twitter that’s why approx 4 years before I have given Adesh_Saxena as user name to my twitter Account. When I start blogging on Devetol then I change twitter User name devetolcom but after few days I change Adesh_Saxena.
