Discovered : A to Z Twitter Accounts

Twitter is now one of  the well known social media site, where everybody sharing “what is happening” on their side of the world,in 140 characters limit. Despite some application that can make you send more than 140 char tweets such as twitlonger, you need to manage in sending a tweet in less than 140 char, to make easier for others to ReTweet your tweet (the old fashion way). For me one of the uniqueness of twitter is “the art of sharing in 140 characters“.

With that limitation in character, one of the most important things that your Twitter ID/Account should be shorter as it can be, so it wont take too much character when people ReTweeting your tweet.

I have been wondering is there anyone that having the shortest Twitter ID, and in that “shortest” criteria will definitely be an ID with only a single character. So I have done some searching, and found these twitter ID with a single character.
Here they are in alphabetical order :

@A

@B

@C

@D

@E

@F

@G

@H

@I

@J

@K

@L

@M

@N

@O

@P

@Q

@R

@S

@T

@U

@V

@W

@X

@Y

@Z

So now we all know that the A to Z single alphabet of twitter ID has been taken, how lucky they are! Thank you for reading, and let us hear from you on the comment box.

Cheers

    Federation will not be kind to these people. Already we see interference from identical, yet conflicting IDs in use on both Twitter and Twitter clients that maintain their own compatible OMB networks, e.g., from Status.net's networks. Most outside OMB networks do not support Twitter's syntax conventions for upper and lowercase letters. @replies will present particular problems for these people when attempting to receive replies to posts across different platforms. IMHO it's better to nail down a consistent ID across as many networks as possible, even though this ID may not be short.

      Anthony thank you for sharing your thoughts, hope one day those people stopping by this blog and read your IMHO in any syntax convention as they want it to be,so that would not conflicting any of those network,in or outside twitter client :)

    Early adoption is cool for this respect, and easy to explain, HOWEVER, take a look at our mentions. It's really difficult to have a conversation on twitter due to many twitterers tweeting incorrectly. For some reason, Indonesians like to RT and shorten who they're RT'ing & way too often it shows up in my mentions. But I do like your post about this. Thank you! cheers! @V

      Hi William, Thank you for the comment, and yes i've seen that and i strictly never agree to anyone who wants to reply their @s use RT instead. beside the cut-off of any ID can reflect others and especially those with single char,it will not shows any engaged history,that will be another post idea then :) Thanks again Cheers
