How to use a Freename Domain as X Handle?
Freename domains are next-generation domains that allow you to own your online identity truly. Once you purchase a Freename domain name, it’s yours – forever. You can build your brand around it without worrying about losing the domain name due to non-renewal or expiry.
Twitter is an excellent place to grow your online presence and build a following quickly. And you can use the Freename domain as a Twitter handle to grow your identity. As you’ll see, this is less complicated than it sounds.
Does Twitter Accept Web3 Names Integration?
First things first: You should know that Twitter doesn’t accept web3 integrations at the moment. Neither does it verify them. There are no app stores, services, or APIs for this purpose.
This means to use web3 Freename domains as Twitter handles, you do not have to implement any technical procedures or get involved in coding. Instead, it involves a simple non-coding process.
Using Freename Domain as a Twitter Handle
If you want to use the web3 domain purchased on Freename as the official Twitter handle, here is the process to follow:
- Login to your Twitter account or create a new one.
- Click on the ‘Profile’ option to visit the profile page
- Locate the ‘Edit Profile’ option on the right-hand side of the screen and click on it
- In the name field, provide the Freename domain name you just acquired
- Click on ‘Save’ and exit
Now, the Twitter account should reflect your Freename domain name. Every time you tweet news, updates, or opinions, it’ll be done under the domain name, thus strengthening your brand name. To further personalize it, you can add an avatar as a profile image and provide a link to the domain name.
Does Twitter Allow Web3 Names as Profile Handle?
Now that you know how to use a Freename domain as a Twitter handle, you might be wondering if it’s allowed.
Well, there are no restrictions as far as setting a web3 name as an account name. There are certain restrictions on what name you can set. Some of the guidelines, as stated on its policy page are:
- Usernames containing the word “Twitter” or “Admin” aren’t allowed.
- The username cannot be longer than 15 characters.
- The username should only contain alphanumeric characters.
Furthermore, if the name is already taken, you can’t possibly use the same name for the Twitter handle. You’d have to go for an alternate or similar-sounding name.
That being said, it’s allowed to use web3 names as profile handles.
Freename is a web3 domain service that allows anyone to buy and claim web3 domains. When you buy a TLD (top-level domain) from Freename, it’s yours forever. The domains purchased are hosted on the registrant’s blockchain, like AURORA, Polygon, BSC, CRONOS and others. Freename also enables individuals to earn passive income from their TLDs. The TLD holder earns a commission whenever someone buys a SLD related to the TLD. This is a new business model enabled by the web3 architecture and fulfilled by Freename.
