I changed my twitter handle recently. How can I change this on my Stack Exchange profile?

    Just.. edit your profile? Am I missing something and are we talking about the network-wide profile page perhaps? – Martijn Pieters May 28 '15 at 16:28
  • If so, your network profile looks up to date. – Martijn Pieters May 28 '15 at 16:29

    Also, the network profile doesn't (yet) reflect the recent profile updates, so the dedicated Twitter ID field is not yet supported. Presumably this has to wait for all SE sites to support the field first. – Martijn Pieters May 28 '15 at 16:30
  • Yes, the network profile. I hardly ever change anything and the interface looks different since I've attempted to change it. My twitter handle is no longer what is states it is on my profile. – Christopher Chipps May 28 '15 at 16:31
  • The link I can see on your network profile is also being used on just about every other SE account you have here. The network profile is automatically updated from your oldest SE account. – Martijn Pieters May 28 '15 at 16:33

    As such you just need to edit your SE accounts, the twitter link I see on the network profile is just part of your About Me section. – Martijn Pieters May 28 '15 at 16:33
  • Many thanks @MartijnPieters! – Christopher Chipps May 28 '15 at 16:36

Your network profile is updated from your oldest Stack Exchange account, so you'll have to edit that account to see the changes reflected. It can take a while to copy the changes across.

The Twitter URL in your network profile is part of your About Me section; the newer Twitter ID field added to user profiles is not yet supported by the network profile; presumably that will be rectified once all Stack Exchange sites support the new profile options.

  • I removed my wesite URL from my oldest profile on SO some time ago (several weeks?) but it is still showing on my network profile (even after syncing also some time ago) – DavidPostill Jun 5 '15 at 22:31
  • @DavidPostill: I see you did the right thing and posted a new question. :-) – Martijn Pieters Jun 6 '15 at 12:27
