Twitter is now allowing users to share access to their multiple accounts via iOS and Android applications without needing to share that accounts password. The company retweeted a tweet from its ‘TweetDeck’ unit that said: “Teams is a safe way to manage accounts without having to share passwords. Now available on mobile within the Twitter app.” Also Read - Explained: Can Twitter get banned in India?
TweetDeck offers a more convenient Twitter experience by letting you view multiple timelines in one easy interface. Many of ‘TweetDeck’s more advanced features, like muting, search and list management, already exist on Twitter itself. It only makes sense that shared accounts would make their way over too, TechCrunch reported. Also Read - Twitter friends/followers seeking your unwanted attention could be Unmentioned
Earlier, contributors and admins could only use ‘TweetDeck Teams’ accounts in ‘TweetDeck’ itself. ‘TweetDeck’ app was bought by Twitter for $40 million back in 2011. Twitter discontinued ‘TweetDeck’s mobile apps a few years ago and later shut down its Windows client last year.
Meanwhile, ‘TweetDeck’ app for Mac has not been updated since mid-2015 on the Mac App Store. The micro-blogging platform added zero users since first quarter, posting $574 million in revenue in the second quarter this year which is a decrease of five percent YoY (year-on-year). Twitter now has 328 million monthly active users (MAUs).
