Our company just went through a huge re-branding process. Accordingly, we are trying to set up our new social-media profiles. Facebook and LinkedIn were easy enough. But, we are having an issue with Twitter. Someone already has our company name as their user name. I did some further digging and found that it hasn’t been used in over a year. Is there any way we can acquire it? What are our options?
