I have a rather trivial problem but would be very grateful

Customer Question

I have a rather trivial problem but would be very grateful advice, please. Against my long held beliefs, I recently opened a Twitter account. I am a straightforward, honest kind of soul and gave all my details as required including my email address which has my "nom de plume", this being the name I thought would be displayed. The reason is that I have an unusual name which, according to my searches, show me as the only person in the UK with the name! However, when I made my first Tweet (is that the right terminology? ) my full name was displayed. I tried to contact Twitter but to no avail. Do I just give up and accept that an old fart like me should leave new technology to the young or is there a solution to my problem? I have nothing to hide and Twitter would always, and rightly, have all my details but most Tweeters appear to have a nom dr plume so why not me? Thank you , I hope you can help because I hate to be beaten by the system, no matter what the system is.
