If you ever need an additional email address just to sign up for something or activate an additional Twitter account, you don’t need to get another email box… at least if you have Gmail.
With a Gmail account, you’re automatically given a googlemail.com account, so if your email is firstname.lastname@example.org, this means you automatically already have email@example.com.
Need even more options? Gmail doesn’t recognize periods in email addresses, so you can also splice up all the letters before the @ with periods. Using the example email address above, you could input firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org and so on! And they will all go straight to your regular old Gmail inbox.
