Surely Twitter would have something in it's terms and conditions allowing it to simply change usernames at a whim if it was clear account squatting was taking place.

 

I know Instagram changed the handle of a Reading FC supporter living in Sussex so they could give the @sussexroyal handle to Harry and Meghan - without even telling him first. I think he ended up with @_sussexroyal_

Ok this is a kinda pointless observation but I am currently working on a paper about the Starbucks logo and I found out their logo is based off Norse mythology's Siren, and they were also founded in seattle. 2 norse based logos founded in seattle, I looked it up and couldn't find anything about heavy norse influence there, does anyone know something I dont?

There’s also Swedish Medical Center - the sign being the famous(?) “Swedish” Tom Green put his bum on.

 

Lots of descendants of Norwegians and Swedes live in the area. Not a huge number mind you but not insignificant. The Puget Sound is as close as you’ll get to the fjords in the lower 48.

I actually thought Sirens would have been a really great name given the city’s association with Starbucks and progressive politics.

There's talk of Seattle acquiring a pro women's hockey team.

I've heard "Sirens" being bandied about as a possible name for that.
