A to Z of Twitter: Shortest Tweepl you never knew!

Unlike most Web-Wares, Twitter has no lower limit on the characters in the username, though; each tweet is limited to 140 characters. Writing sensible stuffs in short words is the fun part of tweeting. The username precedes all the @replies to tweets, so the shorter the username, the longer can be the message part. A longer username leaves less room for the message part.

But if you are thinking of taking a single character username, just like I did today morning, you will find that all short names have been taken. Early Bird Catches The Worm! Let me honor the early birdies.

Twitter BirdieGlossary Search:
Twitter : Popular micro blogging platform, details here. (Now that’s what I call a base post!)
Tweepl : is a commonly used slang for people who use twitter a.k.a tweeps, a.k.a. twitterer a.k.a Tweeps

      The problem is that all special usernames are taken. Atleast the shortest ones are gone. :(

    Very unusual and witty post. I guess we all missed this trick and perhaps all these very short names were taken in the very early days of twitter.
