GroupTweet allows you to create group Twitter accounts. This post will walk you through the initial steps of creating a GroupTweet account so you can share a Twitter account with multiple contributors.
If you want to learn exactly how GroupTweet works and what settings are available, check out our next post (after reading this quick quide): A Step by Step Guide to Managing a GroupTweet account.
Step 1: Create a Twitter account for the Group
If you already have a company Twitter account or an account for your organization, team, or classroom then you already have this step covered. If you are starting a new group account, first signup for an account at Twitter.com. Want to use the same email on multiple accounts? Use this trick.
Step 2: Connect your Group Account with GroupTweet
Visit GroupTweet.com and click on the “Get Started” button.
On the next page, click the “Connect with Twitter” button.
This launches a Twitter Authorization window. You must authorize GroupTweet to have access to your account. Simply login to the Group Twitter account that you wish to add multiple contributors to.
Step #3: The GroupTweet Dashboard
After authorizing GroupTweet you will be directed to your “GroupTweet Dashboard” and see the following message:
Assuming you connected the group account, and not your personal account, click “Continue to Dashboard”.
Contributors can now send GroupTweets in two ways:
1) Direct from the Dashboard - Messages sent from the @BreakingNewsGT dashboard are just like normal Tweets from that account. Contributors can login to your Dashboard with an Email address, so they don’t even need their own personal Twitter account.
2) From their own personal Twitter accounts. No need for contributors to login or even register for another website.
Step #4: Add Contributors and Configure your Settings
Now that you have your group Twitter account activated and registered with GroupTweet you are ready to add contributors and configure your GroupTweet settings.
GroupTweet is very flexible and can be configured in a number of ways, so we’ve created a step by step guide to managing a GroupTweet account.
