How To Create Multiple Twitter Accounts With One Email ID

For many reasons we need multiple twitter accounts.  I use @gopinathm as personal twitter account and @techdreamsorg for my blog tweets. When we try to set up a second twitter account using a single email id, twitter shows an error message “email has already been taken.“

Many of us don’t like to create a second email address just for the sake of creating a second twitter account. So lets see how we can easily setup multiple twitter accounts with a single email address.

With your gmail account It’s very easy to setup multiple twitter accounts.You can follow any of these tricks

Using .(DOT) anywhere in GMail ID for secondary accounts

GMail allows us to insert a dot anywhere in our email and considers it as the same account without dots. For example emails sent to yourid@gmail.com  and your.id@gmail.com are considered as same and the mails are always delivered to yourid@gmail.com.
