I updated my Twitter name today. Rather than being @nicap, I am now @YousephTanha.
I was a little worried about making this change. I thought I might have to contact the people on my friends list and let them know they needed to update their contact information about me. That has turned out not to be the case. When I updated my name from @nicap to @YousephTanha, it seems twitter updated everything associated with @nicap on the backend. The result is that no one had to do a thing. The contact information just updated across the board for everyone. Pretty cool functionality. Thanks Twitter!
I also added a twitter widget to my sidebar on the right.
