Another Brick In the Reporter Brand Wall

This is something that will happen a lot: What happens to a reporter's popular Twitter account when she jumps to a rival? What if, I dunno, @Maddow jumped to CNN?

So, last time I checked, it was trivial to change your Twitter username and keep all your followers, etc. right where they were. In the heady early days when there were about 14 people on Twitter (OK, 14 thousand, whatevs) I started my account with an anonymous-ish handle I used on the Web once upon a time. It was simple to switch to my real name right here: and it looks like it still is.
