is it possible to make users profile / author url like domain.com/username?

I have tried to set "user" instead of "author" as a slug and use the following code in htaccess:

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/(news|blog|tag)(/.*)? RewriteRule ^([-_~*a-zA-Z0-9]+)(/)?$ user/$1

In the RewriteCond I set all urls, which are otherwise used, f.e. for the blog (blog) or the custom post types 'news'.

I hope its possible to use domain.com/username or forward this to domain.com/user/username
