Twitter adds TweetDeck Teams account sharing to its primary mobile app

Twitter has enabled shared access in its mobile app, porting across a feature previously only available in TweetDeck, the Twitter client it purchased in 2011. The TweetDeck Teams feature enables shared account use without the need to share a password, making management of a business or brand account easier.

Shared accounts are accessed using an individual’s own Twitter account, and found under the Accounts tab in the app. From here, tweets can be posted and replied to, direct messages sent, and more.

TweetDeck Teams is the latest in a line of features integrated into the main Twitter app, including list management and account muting, making it almost unnecessary to use TweetDeck at all. Twitter hasn’t updated TweetDeck for some time.

Twitter has added user documentation to the TweetDeck Teams help page, sharing how to set the feature up through the Twitter app for iOS and Android.
