http://twitter.com/#!/BisonHero

Seriously, 2 tweets from a year ago, and barely following anyone? What a fucker.

I looked around, and I don't think Twitter will shut down inactive accounts, right? Any other suggestions to somehow free up that username?

Alternately, how do you guys deal with it when you go to sign up on a site and somebody has your preferred username? Any clever suggestions to slightly alter my username? I refuse to use BisonHero1 or BisonHero2012 or anything of the sort, because I'm not twelve years old.

@BisonHero: he has a different name on his profile Suyi Hou, make an account under that name and then start tweeting his friends with it and get them to ask him if he'd like to trade accounts with you.

Yeah, I just add "the" to the name. Like "TheTobbRobb".

Though I've only had to do that once, because I stole the name, from myself.

TheBisonHero sounds alright I think.

Maybe he never disabled emails to indicate new followers. You could devise some plan to give him a sudden burst of followers and ruin the guys day.... Seems kinda mean though =o

Also, I find your handle will be stolen quite often on the internet by somebody who isn't using it anymore. I was just trying to change up my portfolio address, but somebody who clearly aren't using the names anymore, have already taken them.

I swear half the accounts on Twitter feature 2 or 3 tweets one of which is the person talking about how they just started tweeting.

That's why I locked down my name a while ago, though I created my username from nothingness, so its never taken. Its so liberating to know your name is always available.
 
Also, I made a second twitter account with my real name, so when I get famous, I can use that.

Quit whining over a username.

Step 1: Send him threatening letters.

Step 2: Spread nasty rumors about him to all of his friends.

Step 3: Set fire to his dog. If he doesn't have a dog, buy him one, THEN set fire to it.

Step 4: Carve your demands (in this case, use of his twitter handle) onto his chest.

(optional) Step 5: If he doesn't give it up, drug him, remove his heart, hook him up to one of those old-school artificial hearts that has to be plugged into the wall, and hold his real heart ransom. I have found that this works shockingly well.

The study I remember is a couple years old now, but the stats were that, yes, the vast majority of Twitter users posted once or twice and then never came back. Not sure if it's still the case, but probably not far off. They said like 10% of Twitter's users make up 90% of its tweets.

Ask twitter nicely to remove the name and give it to you?

This thread seems sharply divided between people who have no sense of humour, and awesome people who came up with some pretty good goofs. You know who you are.

You just need variants on your username. Mine's MideonNViscera, but I generally try for just Mideon first. I can also be MideonV. On Yahoo Messenger (haha why did I ever have that?) I had to be MideonNV. Of course it's easier with mine because it's all derived from my EQ character, Mideon N'Viscera. That's my suggestion though, because you'll probably have this issue again sometime.

I reckon if you narrow it down to you get two dudes making up 80% of the tweets.

It's too bad it's already taken and that the guy doesn't even use it. If he doesn't buck, consider BisonHer0. Really, an ever so-slightly more elongated "o" is no different in this context. And of course, make sure you're the real deal.
