In May of 2013, Twitter released an update to their mobile app that finally brought easy support for multiple Twitter accounts. For many Twitter users, this is likely not a big deal. But if you have have a personal Twitter account and a business Twitter account, managing both from your iPhone is a bit challenging.
This brilliant 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. For Android devices, the additional accounts are added within the Twitter app.
iOS has supported multiple Twitter accounts since Twitter was integrated into the OS in 2010, 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. If you’re on Android and are curious, you can add additional Twitter accounts directly to the Twitter app and instructions are below. I also have a recommendation at the end on an app that you may find eveneasier to use, particularly if you have several Twitter accounts to manage.
