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. 1.
    Do not make your handle all CAPITAL - it makes your username hard to read, and more AGGRESSIVE.
  2. 2.
    Capitalization may only be used for: i. Names with acronyms (ex: U.S.A -> @USA). ii. Two words where the letters in the beginning and ends match (ex: Not Thomas -> @NotThomas) iii. Words that come after numbers (ex: 30 Days -> @30Days) iiii. In a handle that contains acronyms (ex: exampleNFT -> ExampleNFT)
  3. 3.
    Avoid using underscores (_) to space words out, it is better to just write it out (ex:@real_man_sam -> @realmansam)
  4. 4.
    It is permissible to add an underscore (_) after a Twitter handle you desire but is already take (ex: @takenhandle -> @takenhandle_) .
  5. 5.
    i) Never add an underscore (_) in the beginning of your handle.
  6. 6.
    ii) Never add two underscores (__) in a row in your handle.
  7. 7.
    If you have an acronym in your handle it must either be all lowercase or all capital (ex: @ExampleDao -> @ExampleDAO or @exampledao)
  8. 8.
    If you would like to incorporate domain names into your handle it can be done with an underscore (_), or without, if you would like to incorporate the .io domain it may be in capital if it is with an underscore (_) before.
  9. 9.
    Avoid random numbers in your handle at ALL costs.
  10. 10.
    Use your own judgement, if your eyes see something off with your handle, just change it, won't hurt anyone
