I just obtained a domain for a new website, let's call it
I'm quite annoyed at the fact there is a Twitter user with the handle
For a professional appearance I would like to acquire this Twitter account to use in my marketing and not have to settle for something like
The word squatter is inappropriate because that implies a certain intent, this user may have just signed up and never used their account. But regardless...
- They signed up in 2009
- They have never posted once and follow zero people
I would like to get in touch with this user, but for privacy reasons I doubt Twitter would provide me with their contact information. Since they have been inactive on Twitter for over a decade I don't expect them to respond to my messages.
What is the best way to go about this situation? I would be willing to pay a reasonable fee for the user to surrender the account to me, but this is also against Twitter rules. So I'm not even sure how to proceed.
