Twitter/Reddit/Instagram/GitHub, get literal name if available. On Twitter, lowercasing the name looks good (Twitter will show your custom real name in searches already). Can capitalize username if its multiple words (can rename username if needed). Capitalize Reddit subreddit name as it stands out better in searches & its more recognizable (the name can't be changed later so capitalize even if one word). GitHub is good lowercased, literal name or with dashes. If name is taken, can add _ or HQ/App/Inc in the end or prefix with get or use. For Instagram, if literal name is taken, it's possible to get domain name literal like narative.co. Can use namecheckr to check for available names.
