We wanted to let you know that we’re moving to a new home on Twitter later today*, which means we’ll be changing from @TeamXero to @Xero.
For those of you on Twitter who are already following us on @TeamXero you don’t need to do anything. The move will happen auto-magically and you’ll still be able to see all your tweets with us and continue to be a loyal follower.
If you were previously following us on @Xero you might find yourself swapped back to @TeamXero. Don’t worry if this happens, we’ll be watching out and will help you make the move to our new home.
So why the change? We thought we’d share a few of the reasons. This might be useful for any others using or considering Twitter for their business too:
- Xero is our core name and brand
- People naturally search by company name on Twitter
- It’s shorter, so it gives us all a few more precious characters to use (although I heard recently that the average tweet is now 77 characters)
- It helps with SEO by making sure web searches for your company show your Twitter account in the results
I’ll still be there (^OG = Orange Girl) along with some other guest tweeters as time and expertise allows.
*Update: the move is complete!
