  • Once you are done click or tap the Sign Up button when done.
  • If you didn’t do it already, you’ll now be asked to enter your phone number, but you can use the Skip link at the bottom of that page if you want to avoid connecting your phone number to your Twitter account. You can always do this later.
  • Select a username on the next page by typing one in the text box or clicking a suggested one based off your name and email address. You can always change it later if you want, or you can skip this step with the Skip link and fill in your username later.

At this point, you can go to Twitter’s homepage to get to your account or you can continue through with setup.

  • Hit the Let’s go! button to tell Twitter your interests, which will help recommend Twitter users you should follow.
  • Choose the Continue button to have the option to import your Gmail or Outlook contacts, which Twitter can use to recommend followers that you know. If you don’t want to do that, click the ​No thanks link.
  • Select the users you want to follow from Twitter’s recommendations, or use the button on the top of the page to quickly follow all of them. You can also uncheck the ones you don’t want to follow (you can uncheck all of them if you wish). Use the blue button at the top right of that page to go on to the next step.
