that would make it a lot easier to remember and to be able to send to friends.

There has been quite a lot of internal discussion about this 😁

There are some challenges to resolve (for instance, since usernames can be changed, we don't want old links to be broken, or worse, going to a new "squatter" account).

Those challenges are the same for having @username "mentions" in posts, which I'd like to implement first - so the resolution of those will affect how we approach username URL's.

Agree with @alien_sunset. I think this would be a useful feature.
