Yes one person can have multiple Twitter accounts -- a Twitter account doesn't even necessarily need to be "owned" by a human being.

To create another account:
1. Log out of the Twitter website
2. Go to
3. Follow the procedure to create a new account; provide a unique email address & screen name & note your new password
4. You now have two Twitter accounts. Some Twitter applications support multiple accounts as well.

I'm having the same problem. I want a second account on Twitter. Every time I try to sign in, it takes me back to my account even if I'm signed out. What gives?


I tweet frequently.

My name is ____ above - lol.
My company name is - my handle, lol.
For company twitter account use company logo, company handle if possible (to switch?)
For personal account use headshot, personal handle (if possible to switch?)

probably because you havent signed in on that account in a while. Cuz Twitter has this strict 9 month absence. So if you havent been on it in a while they rename it so other people can use your username if they ironically have the same username as you.

Trying to create a 2nd account but every time I log into Twitter, my account comes up automatically. How can I bypass this so I can create a 2nd account?

it does not allow you to use the same email address which is very frustrating as i don't want to have open another account.

My original account is no longer responding. I cannot send Tweets anymore.
This all happened after I used CCleaner.
Should I open a new account?

I have set up a second account but having trouble switching between accounts on my iPhone. I keep getting the message: "Could not remove account".
I don't want to remove the account, I just want to sign out of one and into the other?
I tried downloading Twitter a second time but it just automatically take me to my original account.
Any suggestions?

Not sure if it's the same on the iPhone but on the ipad I was able to create a second account from the ipad 'settings'. Once created, I logged onto my first twitter account and selected the accounts icon ( image of two heads) located on the right and press the + button and off you go.

Hope this helps.

Not sure why people have had difficulty with this but the majority of problems above are down to your browser cookies - they remember your log-in.
You can delete your cookies but that's a little drastic.
A very easy way is to access one account on 1 browser and another account on another browser eg. Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Chrome, etc. Each browser will save its own cookies.
The best way however is to use the twitter app on your phone which provides the ability to switch from one account to another.
If you wish to use just one browser, and prefer to set it up from that browser, just log-out and then create a new account from the home page. Do not login, as that will take you to your original account, but you will need to set up the additional account(s) with different email addresses.

Why can't a single developer have different developer accounts (i.e. doing the stupid phone activation thing) using the same phone number?

How can you expect web developers who create twitter accounts on behalf of their clients to be able to setup when we are restricted to using only 1 phone number?

Why can't I create a second account (just for my blog) with my current email address?
I don't want to have to manage two email accounts just to get two twitter accounts.

Without reading through all of the answers above I can say that you can in fact have multiple accounts. When you are signing up for a new account you do need to logout of your 1st account, and some web browser may force you to clear your cookies before you signup for a new account, "with" a different email addie...easy to do!
