How can I get a Twitter name, which has been deactivated 40 days ago and nobody else has got this yet?


I would like to change my “Twitter name” into a name, which someone has deactivated for me. This was about 40 days ago. The person told me she got a message, that she can go back to her account/ name for 30 days and after that it should be available for others. But now, after 40 days I’m still not able to take this name. Twitter always tells me, that the name is not available. But there is no other person, company, etc. named like I would like to be named.

Could you please help me, what I can do?

Thanks in advance,

Best regards
