Ten Commandments of Twitter Handles
Instructions on how to make the best Twitter @handle
I've always had an obsession with Twitter handles, so it's time to compile rules on how to make the optimal one!
- 1.Do not make your handle all CAPITAL - it makes your username hard to read, and more AGGRESSIVE.

- 9.Avoid random numbers in your handle at ALL costs.
- 10.Use your own judgement, if your eyes see something off with your handle, just change it, won't hurt anyone
