How to use one Gmail account for two Twitter accounts

Want to make two (or more) Twitter accounts, but don’t feel like creating another Gmail address for each one? You can!

Technique 1: Use + (plus)

Let’s say your email is

ectropyarts@gmail.com

Simply add +, then a string of email-safe characters to the end of your email address, but before the @. Emails sent to any of these addresses will be delivered to your ‘real’ address:

ectropyarts+twitter@gmail.com

ectropyarts+wordpress@gmail.com

ectropyarts+rainhurst@gmail.com

Technique 2: Use dots

Let’s use the same base email as before.

ectropyarts@gmail.com

Gmail allows you to add dots to your email address, and will consider all of these variations the same as your ‘real’ address for email delivery purposes.

ectropy.arts@gmail.com

e.ctropyarts@gmail.com

e.c.t.r.o.p.y.arts@gmail.com

That’s all!

You can sign up for several twitter accounts using these techniques, 

These are both officially supported techniques, mentioned on Gmail’s blog. Have fun!
