How To Create And Manage Two Or More Twitter Accounts

- ADVERTISEMENT -

Are you trying to ensure your business and personal lives are separate on Twitter? Maybe you are fighting for a political position, or you created a parody account, or you are just trying to be an influencer? Whatever the case may be, it is always best to not mix business with pleasure, so you should just create another Twitter account and switch easily between the 2 accounts you own from time to time.

Both accounts will have 2 different usernames, even if they can be linked to one email account for Gmail users. Simply add a dot anywhere in the username and Twitter will read these tweaked addresses as totally different users, even if they both point to the same account ([email protected] vs [email protected] for instance).

Access Twitter.com, but rather than signing in like always, tap “Sign Up.” Type in your name, any name you want, and Twitter will come up with a username based on it. Then type in either a phone number or email address, and tap “Next.”

After that, check your email or SMSes for a confirmation code from Twitter and type it in under “verification code.” Tap “Next,” and at the next screen, create your password. Tap “Next” again.

You will then be allowed to add a profile picture (recommended dimensions are 400 by 400 pixels) and bio, even if you can skip these steps for now. Adding a picture is advised because Twitter allows people to block notifications from accounts with the default profile photo.

When that is done, select your interests, and Twitter will immediately suggest accounts you should follow. Tap the “Follow” button close to all the names that interest you, or tap the “Follow” button way up on the display to follow them all.

After following, Twitter will lead you to your timeline. Your display name and username will be visible on the top left. It is best to alter these monikers until they are more suitable for you. To make that happen, tap your profile icon on the top-right and choose “Settings and privacy.”

Way up on the “Account” section, you will see a field for your username, tap it and enter another username. Your username should be 15 characters or less and it must contain just letters, numbers, and underscores with no spaces. As you make up your mind on your username, Twitter will notify you if you are using an unsupported character or if the name has been used already. Tap “Save Changes” when you are done.

To alter your display name, head to your Twitter page, (twitter.com/[your username]), tap “Edit Profile”, and enter something fresh under “Name.” These changes can be made on the desktop or mobile.

How Can I Create a Twitter Account On My Mobile Phone?

Now, we will use Twitter’s mobile application for iOS or Android to create a second account. To do this, simply launch the Twitter application, and click your profile icon in the upper-left corner. From your profile page, iOS users will click the ellipsis icon (), while Android owners will click the little down arrow.

This is where you will be able to create a new Twitter account or link an existing one. If you still have just one account, click “Create a new account.” Twitter will ask for the same information it does when users create an account on the desktop.

Because you are on your phone, you can easily sync Twitter with your contacts to locate friends on the platform and choose the ones you wish to follow.

As soon as you set up your second account, it is time to know how to juggle 2 Twitter accounts simultaneously. On the site, you cannot sign in to the same account in the same browser. If you need the 2 accounts to be available at the same time, just open one browser for one account and a second browser for the other account and then switch however you please. You can even use a private tab like Incognito Mode in Chrome, and you will find it easy to use both accounts.
