However, the results yield are worth the effort put behind the creation of cool usernames as they are going to leave a good impression on others and may increase the followers.

People should make usernames accordingly that justify their purpose on such platforms. Twitter and Facebook are more of a mixture of professional and personal information.
The user needs to have a username based on what they will use it. Instagram is a platform that the user uses to post their photos. It is more to connect with other users, make them like your photos, make them follow your account. Hence, the username cannot be a funky one on Twitter in contrast to the username on Instagram where it can be made creative.

Will it be used for some comedy content, for fitness tips, for beauty advice, for endorsing brands, or for sharing your daily lifestyle? It may be for anything. For a perfect username that goes in tune with your profile, you should first get clarity on its type of content.
