How Many are the Same?

Out of 166 accounts, there are 88 where the user’s name and username are exactly the same (such as Tom Hanks @tomhanks). That comes to 53%.

Since these multi-million dollar brands and celebrities probably know a lot more about brand naming than you, it’s fair to say that if you’re in any doubt about what to pick for your Twitter username, just go with your name.
