How to Set Up Multiple Twitter Accounts on Your iPhone
Posted on June 4th 2013
Twitter released an update to their mobile app that finally brings easy support for multiple Twitter accounts. For many Twitter users, this is likely not a big deal. If you're like me though, you may have a personal Twitter account and a business Twitter account, and managing both from your iPhone was a bit challenging.
The new Twitter update allows you to switch back and forth, and even displays your profile logo when composing tweets so that you have a visual reminder of which account you're using. However, in order to connect that second account, you actually have to go into your iPhone's settings.
iOS has supported multiple Twitter accounts since Twitter was integrated into the OS, but again, if you're like me, you've never taken advantage of that fact. I will walk you through adding that second account and then how to use the new Twitter to tweet from multiple accounts whenever you wish.
iOS Twitter Setup
First, open your Settings on your iPhone and scroll down to Twitter. Tap on Add Account. Enter the username and password for the new account and tap sign in. If entered correctly, you should see the new account listed. Here's what mine looks like:
Twitter App Setup
Now, open your Twitter app. Tap on the gear icon to enter Settings and confirm that all of your Twitter accounts are available. You can also customize notifications per account here.
You can now tap on the Tweeticon (the box with the feather) to open a new tweet compose window and tap on your profile icon to switch between accounts. If you've already started writing our tweet, don't worry, that text will remain as you switch accounts.
And that's it! You can now tweet from multiple accounts whenever you wish. If you wish to retweet someone using an account other than your primary account, you will need to use the Quote Tweet option so that you can modify the tweet and choose a different account.
If you want to switch the entire app over to another account, tap the button next to the gear icon and you will see your account list, allowing you to choose a different account to then see that accounts tweets, mentions and more.
If you need help with Twitter or managing your social media in general, let me know.
