When you can send this link to your friends, family members, and other acquaintances, they can directly and easily connect to you on Twitter and come to your Twitter account. Anybody can come to your account, go through your tweets and also follow your profile on Twitter if he or she lands on it.
Here is how to share a Twitter profile:
- Log into your account on Twitter. You can log in to your Twitter account on the Google web browser or the Safari browser of Apple iOS.
- Once you are logged in, you will have to click on the “view my profile” option and button. You will find the option close to your profile picture and your name.
- Here you will be able to see the web address on the address bar of your browser. It is your URL on Twitter and your profile link.
- Select the profile link or your Twitter account web address and copy it.
- You can now share the link and the URL with anybody you want including your friends and family members.

How to share a Twitter profile with a handle?
Before you share your Twitter profile with the handle, you must know what a Twitter handle is. Your handle on the social networking website Twitter is your username on it.
If somebody is asking you about your Twitter handle, he/she is asking about your username. An individual and account holder of Twitter had a unique username. No two individuals/users on Twitter have the same username.
The primary usefulness of a username is that it is used for logging into a Twitter account. You can use your username or the Twitter handle for logging into your account on Twitter. Also, it will become easy for you to search the profile or the account of other people if you are aware of their usernames on Twitter. A Twitter username and handle are visible to everybody on Twitter but are not permanent. Therefore, you can use the Twitter handle or username to locate the account of other members.
The username of a person on Twitter may be located next to his or her name in the messages, replies, or tweets sent by him/her. The @symbol precedes the username of a person.
Your Twitter handle or your username can be seen in the bottom left-hand corner of the Twitter website, once you log into it. Your name will also be written close to your Twitter handle. It starts with the symbol @.
You can also click on the tab “profile” that is located on the left-hand side of the homepage of Twitter. Your Twitter handle will be written beneath your name on the Twitter website here. The URL of your Twitter profile will be available on the same page and will carry the username or handle as well.
Any tweet that you post and send on Twitter will also carry your username or your Twitter handle. Your Twitter handle will start after the symbol of @. The handle will also be shown on the iOS or Android apps of Twitter on the profile screen.
If you want to share your Twitter handle, you can simply tell your username. However, you will also find the “three dots” gear on the profile page. Click on it and you will be able to select the option “share”. You can easily share the link generated here on the page with any person using messaging apps such as Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, or any other.
Can’t share the Twitter profile link
You must be logged into your Twitter account if you want to share your profile link. As stated, the URL can be found on the profile page.
However, the mobile application on Twitter on both iOS as well as Android platforms does not provide you an option to copy and share your Twitter profile link.
There is also an easy way to resolve the problem. You can know your Twitter URL if you know your username on Twitter. For instance, if your username on Twitter is “whatever”, your Twitter URL and profile link will be “twitter.com/whatever”.
You can easily connect to more people and can invite them to follow you if you can successfully share your Twitter profile. It is one of the best ways to be more interactive on Twitter and to connect to an even greater number of followers, friends, family members, and acquaintances easily.
