Enter the information as asked: Full Name: Your full, legal name User Name: The name you want others to find when searching for you [Example: John_C_Smith_Sales_Director] Use underscore (_) marks for better chance at available name Password: The longer, the better.

Both are already checked and will activate unless you uncheck them (click on them to do this). The first opt-in box allows others to find you via your email address and the second one allows Twitter to send periodic announcements to you.5. It may take a couple of tries to get all of the account information accepted for you to create your new account. Any duplication of information with other existing Twitter accounts will reject your entry. Keep trying – there are many creative solutions to securing your Twitter account.6. When all of the information is approved, click the, “CREATE MY ACCOUNT” button.7. INTERESTS – This page allows you to select which interests you would like to follow with your account. The more of these you follow, the more tweets you will receive from others with similar interests. For a business-only Twitter account, you may wish to only follow business related interests.8. FRIENDS – Again, if this is just a business-only account for you, you may wish to keep this list filled with only business contacts. Several icons of sources for searches appear here (Gmail, Yahoo, etc.), all of which may offer access for you to build your friends list.9.
