Twitter Username and Display Name

The username and display name are both different. What we are discussing here is all about the display name. Username is the one that uniquely identifies a user, which can be called the Twitter handle.

It starts with the character ‘@‘, which can easily access one profile and can be used for login and to send direct messages or reply. It can be any name and unique. No more than one person has the same username.
