How to set up a new Twitter account

Even though it may appear daunting at first, creating a Twitter account for company or personal use is a simple process.

Twitter has a signup and onboarding wizard that will walk you through each stage of the process. Some portions can even be skipped and returned to later.

Here’s how to get a Twitter account up and running.

How to Set Up a Twitter Account on a Computer

Step 1: Create a Twitter account by going to or downloading the app. Your display name will be the “Full name” you enter, but unlike Facebook, you can change it to whatever you want as many times as you like, making it very easy to remain anonymous if you so desire.

Step 2: Type your phone number into the box. This is a method of authentication that will assist you in the event that you lose access to your account. Because the next stage will ask you to verify a number given through SMS, you’ll want to use a phone you truly have access to.

Step 3: Create a password and keep it safe! You don’t want a troll to gain access to your account and destroy the reputation you’ve worked so hard to establish.

Step 4: Determine your passions. This will aid you in the next step, in which Twitter will suggest people to follow. You can also say “skip for now” in the top right corner to bypass both of these.

Step 5: Once you’ve logged in, go to the top right of your screen and click the grey silhouette next to the “Tweet” button, then “Settings & Privacy.” You can choose a username from the drop-down menu at the top. People can alert you by entering @ in front of your username in a tweet, and that will be your username, or handle. Choose something you like and believe isn’t already taken, but is also easy to remember for others.

Step 6: Select a persona. The default avatar photo is a silhouette, but you can change it to anything you wish (your face, a dog on a skateboard, the possibilities are endless). Simply go to “Profile” and then “Edit Profile” on the right beneath the blue bar by clicking the silhouette. You can also change your header photo from here. Make sure you read Twitter’s avatar image regulations to ensure your choice does not violate them.

Step 7: Compose your biography. In your bio, you could want to include information about where you work, live, or a phrase from a favorite poem. This is a short text that introduces you to potential followers and tells them what you’re likely to tweet. If you have a website, there is also a place to list it.

Step 1: Enter your name, phone number, and email address. Use your genuine one because the next step will require you to validate it.

Step 2: Enter the verification code you received at whichever contact information you entered in Step 1 in Step 2. Make a password for yourself. Make it powerful, and for the love of God, don’t use the word “dragon” like everyone else.

Step 3: Select whether or not you want to sync your contacts. This may assist you in locating Twitter followers you are familiar with, but if you don’t want to, simply select “not now.”

Step 4: Look for things you’re interested in. This will aid Twitter in suggesting good profiles to follow.

Step 5: Based on your interests, Twitter will suggest some accounts for you to follow. Choose a handful that appeal to you. If you spot them first, you’re off to a good start.

Step 6: You’ve made it! To tweet, click the blue icon on the top right, and to change your profile image and settings, click the grey silhouette on the top left.

Start by going to your Twitter home page

You’ll be transported to your Twitter home page after finishing registration and setting up your profile. You’ll see the most recent posts or tweets from the persons you’ve chosen to follow.

Additional account options and settings can be found in the left-hand sidebar menu, or by selecting the three horizontal lines icon on the mobile app.
