What’s the difference between a display name and a username?

On Twine, every member has a display name and a username.

Your display name is the name that you want to be known as on Twine. Display names aren't unique, so you can choose whatever you like and not worry about whether it's already been taken. You can see your display name on your portfolio page, directly underneath your profile picture.

Your username can be found underneath your display name on your portfolio page and starts with the '@' symbol. Usernames on Twine are unique and are used to identify your account. Your username is also your portfolio URL and can be used to visit your profile. For example: https://www.twine.is/yourusername.
 

To change your username and/or display name go to your settings page. Under account settings you can edit your username and under profile settings you can edit your display name, along with any other profile information you want to change.
