I have username problems.

I recently deleted my Snapchat account because of the fact that I wanted a new username. But, after some time, I had decided that I actually really liked my username and tried to create a new account with that same username. After typing in the username Snapchat says that it's currently unavailable. Why is this? The username isn't already taken, the account that the username was associated with was deleted.

If you create a username and then delete it, this username won't be available for registration any more. This is the company's policy, and there is no way to change it. Unfortunately, you will have to create another account with a different username. Once the username/account has been deleted, there is no way to recover it or use the available recovery options.
