We have great news – this is possible, but only with a Gmail e-mail address. Gmail reacts to symbols much differently than the average social media platform, which is good news for its users and for those who needs more than one social media profile.

How does Gmail react to symbols?

Before jumping the gun and creating multiple Twitter accounts, it is important that you understand how Gmail sees symbols and how the react to it. In a nutshell they don’t care! Yip, Gmail does not care if your email is sent to eric.example@gmail.com or ericexample@gmail.com to them both are the same. You can receive e-mails to both eric.example@gmail.com and ericexample@gmail.com and both e-mails will reach the same inbox!

Now that you understand how Gmail reacts to symbols we can move on to Twitter (and Facebook). Twitter has no way to detect if eric.example@gmail.com is the same as ericexample@gmail.com this means that Twitter sees these two e-mails addresses as two different addresses. This means that you can create a Twitter account with eric.example@gmail.com for your personal account and create another Twitter account with ericexample@gmail.com for your business account.

Yes, it’s as simple as that. To register for multiple Twitter accounts you simply need to either remove the symbol that is already in your Gmail e-mail address or add a symbol to the e-mail address if there isn’t one. Another handy trick is the + sign – what? If you run out of symbols to remove from your e-mail address you can simply add a + sign to the address. For example if you want to register for a Twitter account and have no symbols to remove you can simply add “+ something” behind your username and before the @gmail.com like this ericexample+companyname@gmail.com. Again, Twitter will see this as a different e-mail address, but Gmail will see it as the same e-mail address sending all of the notifications to one account.
