    Any Twitter users here? I'm just getting organized for Twitter and successfully changed my username on the desktop PC and then the profile pic but neither change appears in the iPad app. Strangely the new website URL updated automatically and a few tweets show that I did from the desktop. I go to Profile, Edit Profile, change the name but still no update. I tried changing the photo to the exact same one I used on the PC and that didn't take. Any ideas?

    Only one. Try signing out of the account (on the iPad), and back in using the new name.

    Would you believe that did occur to me but I couldn't see how to do so. Can you explain how?

    I can understand your confusion. Apple integrated Twitter service with the iOS 5 update. You'll find the account settings under Settings > Twitter. Select your account and delete it, then add it again.

    Glad to help.

    But I still have 2,270 posts to go before I'm a legend. ;)
