Rob Dyrdek
hates the name Rob Dyrdek -- this according to Rob Dyrdek.

The MTV star made it clear on Twitter -- he's sick of using his full name on the social media site, and instead offered to buy the far more abbreviated ... @rob from some dude named Rob Bertholf.

Dyrdek tweeted on Tuesday -- "@rob Do you have any interest in selling your twitter name?" Then added, "You need a vacation? Maybe a nice watch?"

Dyrdrek better think bigger -- much bigger -- because Bertholf tells us he ain't selling for less than 6 FIGURES!!!

The current @rob says he turned down a $25,000 offer two years ago for the handle -- and you gotta love his explanation for the inflated price:  "It wouldn't be worth my time to rebuild all of my profiles that are linked to my twitter handle."

Bertholf has 1,497 followers. Totally worth keeping.

I guesss it's easier to steal a motorcycle gang's logo than someone's twitter handle.

Hey, TMZ lawyers: have a peek at the Twitter rules. I do believe that buying/selling a Twitter handle is a no-no and can result in loss of said handle. Yes?

I love all the tweets, the self-entitled generation shines through.

Just a lesson in marketing, its not about how many followers you have, its about the engagement and topical relevance of the audience gained.

So, what's his name, TMZ? "Dyrdek" or "Dyrdrek"? I'd go with "Dyrtdreck", but that's just me...


Oh, by the way, who is this person?
