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. On this step you want to make sure to authorize GroupTweet to work with your “GROUP” account i.e. the one you wish to allow multiple contributors to Tweet from. You might have to logout of your personal account first and then sign into the group account. The logo in the top right tells you which of your accounts you are authorizing with GroupTweet.
Step #3: The GroupTweet Dashboard
After authorizing GroupTweet you will be taken through a short setup wizard as you see below:
Assuming you connected the group account, and not your personal account, add your email address and click the “Continue” button. On the next step of the wizard (seen below) you will have the option to either add your first contributors (we recommend adding your own personal Twitter account to test things out) or skipping the wizard and proceeding to the GroupTweet dashboard. Since you are reading this blog post, you can go ahead and click the “Skip Guided setup” link under the continue button to proceed to the dashboard and read our follow up block post that helps you configure your account.
Step #4: Add Contributors and Configure your 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.
