Multiple Twitter users can now share access to a single account via the social network’s iOS and Android applications without needing to share that account’s password.

Twitter retweeted a tweet from its TweetDeck unit, saying, “Teams is a safe way to manage accounts without having to share passwords. Now available on mobile within the Twitter app.”

The TweetDeck tweet directs users to a Twitter Help Center page detailing how to set up the teams feature via TweetDeck.

The teams feature on TweetDeck divides users into three classifications:

  • Owner: Able to manage password, phone number and login verification settings. Able to invite other users to access the account as admins or contributors. Able to take actions (tweet, retweet, direct message, like) on behalf of the team account, schedule tweets, create lists and build collections.
  • Admin: Able to invite other users to access the account as admins or contributors. Able to take actions (tweet, retweet, DM, like) on behalf of the team account, schedule tweets, create lists and build collections.
  • Contributor: Able to take actions (tweet, retweet, DM, like) on behalf of the team account, schedule tweets, create lists and build collections.

To set up a team via TweetDeck, users must log in with the account they are sharing access to, click accounts in the navigation bar, select that account, click team @username and type the @username of the user they wish to invite and click authorize.

That user will then receive an email, an invitation in their accounts panel on TweetDeck and a push notification. They can begin using the shared account once the invitation is accepted.
