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 firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com are considered as same and the mails are always delivered to firstname.lastname@example.org.
But Twitter considers email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org as two different email ids and lets you to create two twitter ids. So by just placing a .(dot) anywhere in your email address you can register multiple twitter accounts.
Using email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org trick
Every GMmail inbox is accessible using @gmail.com as well as @googlemail.com domains. So you can use email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org for setting up two twitter accounts
Using email@example.com trick
Another cool feature of GMail id – it allows users to add any text after a plus sign in the email address – GMail treats firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com as same email address.
So you can use firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, etc to create multiple twitter accounts.
These are the three tricks we know to create multiple twitter accounts with a same email id. Do you know any other tricks?

These are great tips – thanks!
The + trick doesn’t always work because some sites check for it.
Sadly, the . trick doesn’t work on google apps mailboxes but it does seem to work great on gmail.com.
