Andy has been bugging me…(this time) about using Periscope.
In one of the posts on our blog I stated I was waiting for something to be done by personnel at Periscope. It was to change my username. You can now follow me at “Slick1”.
My thanks to the “Periscope people” (Nader/Jamie/all) for being nice to look into the issue for me. Some of our conversations is posted below…

Dear Periscope Team,
I assumed I would be allowed to use my Twitter name with Periscope…
Is there any possibility I can request to have “slick” assigned to me?

We are now able to change usernames on our end. Please note that this is a one-time request. We have alerted our team this is a feature users want for the future. In order to change your username, please provide the following: 1. Provide your current username. 2. Confirm what you would like as your new username. (No spaces or special characters.) 3.

Unfortunately, we weren’t able to change your username because it was already taken. Do you have another in mind? Let us know!
