This always happens to me. I went to open a Twitter account yesterday and had to settle for @kevinbrennan520 because some other Kevin Brennan got more hip to the Twitter before me. I never knew until the computer machine really took off that so many dudes out there were named Kevin Brennan, but it’s been a thorn in my side for years now.
There’s a musician Kevin Brennan who took all the best usernames and domains. There’s Kevin Brennan the legislator in New Zealand. There’s Kevin Brennan, funeral director (I finally got my name on a building!), Kevin Brennan the comedian (proud creator of “Half-Baked”), and sundry Kevin Brennans with no particular claim to fame. They’re blocking my online identity every time I turn around!
At least I was able to avoid Twitter’s first suggestion for my handle: @kevinbr8&4%20#.
