How do I find my Twitter handle

Your twitter handle is your twitter name. The name that you respond to when tweeting someone and people identify you as. It has the @ sign in front of it, and if you take the @ sign off you can just type in twitter.com/(Twitter Handle) and you'll be at their twitter page.

  • Go to Components -> Engage Box
  • Create a new Box and set Published to Yes
  • Enter "Follow Me" on the box title
  • Choose the Social Media option from the Box Type listbox
