X Handle Registration
SNS is a primitive of Solana that allows the mapping of names to a Solana account. This permits many things including associating your Twitter handle to your Solana address.
Both Twitter handles and .sol domain names are a part of SNS, yet are slightly different. A Twitter handle can only be claimed by the owner of the Twitter account. In order to guarantee this, the user needs to tweet the wallet address they want to associate with the account and then sign a transaction using the same wallet address.
First, connect your wallet
You can only have one Twitter Handle registered per wallet address
Make sure to have enough SOL in your wallet. Registering your Twitter handle costs ~ 0.01 SOL
Select "Claim Twitter handle" and the steps will be outlined below. Click "Tweet" to start the process
Next, you will be redirected to Twitter and prompted to tweet the message
If your wallet is not connected, the address will be "undefined" and not linked to your profile
Once tweeted, copy the link of your tweet, go back to our website and paste it
Select "Claim Twitter handle" and approve wallet transactions. Your Twitter handle is now registered
When signing the transaction make sure that you are signing with the correct wallet i.e. the same address as the one you tweeted
If you want to link a new or different handle to a wallet address that already has a Twitter handle linked, you would first have to unregister the current handle. There are two options to unregister your Twitter handle
Go to https://sns.id/twitter and select "Unlink"
Be sure to have your wallet connected to the site
Go to your profile page by selecting the icon next to your wallet address in the top right corner. Once on your profile page select the "x" next to your Twitter handle
And confirm that you want to unregister your Twitter handle
Your SOL will be returned after unlinking your Twitter handle
Follow the steps above to register another Twitter handle again. Remember only one Twitter handle per wallet address is permitted
