Twitter has launched TweetDeck teams, an easier way to share access to your Twitter accounts without having to share passwords.
The feature will enable users to delegate access to as many people as they like, and remove accounts when they no longer need access.
In order to use this new feature, Twitter users will be required to log in to TweetDeck Teams with their Twitter credentials, select Twitter accounts they will want to have access to their team, authorize and wait for the account holders to accept request to their TweetDeck Team.
As the person who knows the password, you can still Tweet from the account, add or remove team members, view the team and access the account from non-TweetDeck platforms like Twitter.com or Twitter mobile apps. Users can also update their account’s credentials or password.
TweetDeck will be having two types of roles. The first are administrators, who are users who sign in to TweetDeck with their personal account. As an admin, the user can Tweet from the account, build lists, follow or unfollow accounts, send Tweets, schedule Tweets, add or remove team members and view the team.
The second type are contributors who are people who can Tweet from and act as the account, build lists, follow or unfollow accounts, send Tweets and schedule Tweets. Contributors cannot view, add or remove team members, and cannot access the account outside of TweetDeck.
If one prefers not to receive invitations to others’ teams, they can opt out completely on twitter.com/settings/security or just allow invitations from users whom they follow.
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.
