Solana Name Service — Twitter
The Solana naming service is a primitive of Solana that allows mapping of names to a Solana account. This allows many things including associating your Twitter handle to your Solana address. Let’s see
To associate your Twitter handle to your Solana address, you need to follow these five steps
  1. 1.
    Tweet your Solana address from your Twitter account
In order to make this work there is a few things you need to make sure of the following:
The tweet needs to contain only your Solana address. For instance if your Solana address is FidaKmZFztWo5bx7EBwZ1Z7Wra7PeELXKxdoYEGAjodq, your tweet needs to contain only “FidaKmZFztWo5bx7EBwZ1Z7Wra7PeELXKxdoYEGAjodq” and not “something something FidaKmZFztWo5bx7EBwZ1Z7Wra7PeELXKxdoYEGAjodq something”. If the Tweet contains anything else than your Solana address the registration will fail.
When signing the transaction make sure that you are signing with the correct wallet i.e. with the wallet that has the same address as the one you tweeted.
When entering your Twitter handle make sure it has proper capitalization. For instance, if your Twitter handle is bonfida, entering Bonfida or BonFida will make the transaction fail
When signing the transaction make sure that you are signing with the correct wallet i.e. with the wallet that has the same address as the one you tweeted
Make sure to have enough SOL in your wallet. Registering your Twitter handle costs ~ 0.01 SOL
2. Go to naming.bonfida.com
3. Enter the link to your Tweet
4. Enter your Twitter handle
5. Click Next and sign the transaction with your wallet
