Twitter has launched TweetDeck Teams, a new way to grant access to a central Twitter account on TweetDeck to multiple users without sharing passwords.
Amy Zima, Product Manager at Twitter, writes about what to expect over on the official Twitter Blog.
TweetDeck Teams is a simple solution to Twitter account sharing. It enables you to delegate access to as many people as you like, and remove accounts when they no longer need access.
To set up your team, here’s what you need to do:
1. Login to TweetDeck using your Twitter account credentials
2. Type the Twitter name(s) of the accounts you want to have access to your account
3. Select Authorise – an email will be sent to the account holder who will need to accept the invitation
Team members can be assigned one of two roles – contributors, who can tweet from and act as the account, and admins, who can also add and remove team members.
No team members can change the credentials of the main account or access it off of TweetDeck, and the main account holder can revoke team member access at any time.
Check the video below for a closer look at how TweetDeck Teams works.
TweetDeck Teams began rolling out yesterday on TweetDeck for web, Chrome and Windows.
