Demi Moore may no longer be legally associated with her ex-husband, Ashton Kutcher, but her Twitter handle is.

Moore returned to Twitter, under @mrskutcher, on Thanksgiving. It was her first tweet since their Nov. 17 divorce.

“Why do we have only 1 day for giving thanks? Is that why so many people feel unappreciated? Make this 1 of 365 days of Thanksgiving!,” the Hollywood star tweeted.

But isn’t it kind of awkward to still be tweeting under your ex’s surname?

We reached out to Rachael Horwitz, a Twitter spokeswoman, on how to change your name who pointed us to these directions.

  • 1. Log in to Twitter
  • 2. From the upper right hand drop-down menu, click Settings
  • 3. Change the name listed in your username field on the first page you see there.
  • 4. To change your real name, go to the Profile tab of these settings, and type in a new name.
  • 5. Save your changes.

 

If it’s as easy as those five steps appear to be, why hasn’t the actress switched to @DemiMoore? The account appears to be available (though the link is “suspended”).

Twitter declined to speculate.

“We don’t comment on individual users,” Horwitz said.
