Twitter has launched TweetDeck teams, an easier way to share access to your Twitter account without having to share passwords. TweedDeck Teams allows users to delegate access to more people and remove accounts when they no longer need access.
With admin and contributor roles, multiple users can now post and manage one account with their Twitter credentials. The admin invites and manages contributors who can post and schedule tweets on one account.
Corporate and media Twitter accounts usually have multiple users posting on the same account but this has in the past resulted in compromised Twitter accounts.
“Contributors are those people who can Tweet from and act as the account (plus build lists, follow or unfollow accounts, send Tweets and schedule Tweets). Contributors cannot view, add or remove team members, and cannot access the access the account outside of TweetDeck,” says Twitter on their blog.
The feature, which is available on TweetDeck for web, Chrome and Windows, also introduces a two-step authentication process for extra safety.
The company recently announced two new features, group direct messages and mobile video cameras. The group DMs group allows Twitter users to have private conversations with up to 20 other Twitter users at once.
