Does Twitter have any short name like Facebook's fb.com? It would be easier to advertise Twitter accounts like Facebook pages.

1 Answer 1


twttr.com redirects to twitter.com, so you could use twttr.com/accountname. But that only saves two letters and may not be recognizable to some.

However, the @accountname format is pretty universally recognized as the format of a Twitter account. That's what I'd use.

t.co is Twitter's URL-shortener and wouldn't be useful for this.

  • Also there's a certificate mismatch when using https. Twitter's cert is valid for twitter.com and www.twitter.com but not the twttr.com avatar. Commented Oct 26, 2014 at 22:09
