How to Get a Custom URL on Foursquare


The path to your Foursquare user profile page takes the form "" by default, with "###" reflecting your unique Foursquare ID number. Not only is it hard to remember this URL, but it makes it harder for your friends to spontaneously find you by your name. You can customize your Foursquare profile URL by linking Foursquare to your Twitter account; your URL will then inherit your Twitter username and take the form ""
