Changing your Twitter handle is supposed to be an easy five-step process. So why is Demi Moore still posting as @mrskutcher?
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.
