How to manage personal and band twitter accounts with one email

Use the same gmail address to manage multiple twitter accounts

Every band needs it's own twitter account. A separate one from the personal account that you may already have.

Problem is you can't create a band page under the same email-- like you can with Facebook.

I found this simple trick on labnol.org that will work with your gmail account, if you already have one.

"In Gmail, you can add a dot (.) anywhere in the username and all emails address to that new alias will still reach your mailbox.

For instance, if your original email address is hello@gmail.com, any emails sent to he.llo@gmail.com or he.ll.o@gmail.com will land in your mailbox because Gmail ignores periods in the email username.

And that’s what you can use to trick Twitter.

Twitter will consider hello@gmail and he.llo@gmail as two separate and valid email addresses even though they point to the same Gmail Inbox."

Simple as that. Now you can get alerts for both accounts delivered to the same inbox!
