How To Sell A Twitter Account?

Discussion in 'Twitter' started by Sean101, Aug 28, 2013.

    Hey, I have a few Twitter accounts with several followers, 2 of them are for my websites, but the third one is just Stand Alone Account with no website, etc. tied to it. I am wanting to know, if I offer this third Twitter account up for sale and I get a buyer, what process must be went though to completely transfer the account and ownership over to him / her? Is it simply a case of changing the email to the buyers email and also them changing the password? or is there anything else that needs to be done? Can anyone give me any info on this and if you have either bought and/or sold a Twitter account, please reply below. Thanks!

    AFAIK there is no other obligation than setting a new email and password. However, as @Agent000 pointed out, selling accounts is illegal and if you do it publicly, your account may be suspended if someone reports it.

    Ok, thanks for the information :p
    It makes me think though, what about people that have a website and a Twitter for it, for example, I have XboxLiveFan.org, so if I make a Twitter called @XboxLiveFan .. Later on whenever it may be, I sell my website and cant sell the Twitter along with it?

    I didn't realize that selling Twitter accounts was illegal.

    When you joined twitter you agreed to the terms and conditions and you agreed that you had read and understood them; why did you not know?

    I didn't pay any attention to that part, because I haven't planned on selling my account. I only have one and can't think of why I would ever want to sell it.

    There is one reason which I think is all fine, but I guess still breaks the Twitter rules Is having a Twitter account for your website, then when you sell your website, you will obviously sell the Twitter for it along with it. :p

    I suppose you could privately give them the twitter account username and password once selling the site.

    Yeah. I Just thought of something too, I suppose if the Twitter account for the website being sold is registered with an email like then when the person buys the website, they would automatically have access to the twitter because it is the web mail within the website admin? I think.
