Whether you've switched jobs and no longer have access to your company email or you've decided to finally retire your old Hotmail address, you can easily change the email associated with your Twitter account.

You can make this change online or on the mobile app. The desktop browser version looks a bit different from the condensed app screen, but the process to find your settings is fairly similar.

In your Twitter settings, tap or click your account details to find the email section. After choosing to update the address, you'll be prompted to reenter your password and then verify the change. Twitter will send a code to the new account you entered. Copy the code into the space provided to complete the verification process.

When you return to your settings page, your account details should reflect your new email.

Here's how to change it.
