I got the announcement that Kate Snow is leaving ABC to join NBC a short time ago. I have to admit, the first thing I thought wasn’t about her career, but rather her Twitter handle.
Kate Snow’s current Twitter name is @abckatesnow . When she leaves the network will she simply change the A to an N? Will ABC let her do that? Who owns her Twitter name? Her followers?
It’s a question that you really have to consider when you make your Twitter name. Who owns this? Me? My company? What if I leave? Can I take my followers with me?
We’ll see how it pans out with Kate.
Kate Snow has changed her Twitter name to @TVKateSnow Appears that she simply changed the name, which means all the followers are shifted with her. She also changed her bio, but the web link to ABC is still there.
