Twitter now allows Android and iOS users to share twitter accounts with other people without sharing your password.

Twitter has introduced a
feature called Team that allows a group of people to share one twitter account
without the need to reveal the account password to any of the invitees. An
invited member who logs into his TweetDeck with their own Twitter account will
see the shared account in their own accounts and also in the new tweet panel,
they will then need to enable login verification which will not only keep their
own accounts secure but every other accounts in their TweetDeck.

This is good especially for an
organisation that relies on heavy twitter presence. You do not want an employee
leaving the organisation to hold onto the password of the organisation’s official Twitter
handle. With this feature, all the owner of such organisation needs do is to send
out invitation from the organisation’s handle to the employees he wants to give
access to the account, without having to share the password. These invites are
sent to the individual accounts of these employees who will then enable their
login verification. 
According to Twitter, below is
how it works.
Owner:
·    
>> Can manage password, phone number, and login verification
settings.
·    
>> Can invite others to access the account as admins or
contributors.
·    
>> Can take action on behalf of the team account (Tweet, Retweet,
Direct Message, like, etc.), schedule Tweets, create lists, and build
collections.
·    
Administrator:
·    
>> Can invite others to access the account as admins or
contributors.
·    
>> Can take action on behalf of the team account (Tweet, Retweet,
Direct Message, like, etc.), schedule Tweets, create lists, and build
collections.
·    
Contributor:
·    
>> Can take action on behalf of the team account (Tweet, Retweet,
Direct Message, like, etc.), schedule Tweets, create lists, and build
collections.
Account owners are responsible for whatever any member of the team tweets. You may want to think twice before sending out an invite. Watch the person closely in 3D, especially if you are in a country that clamps down on freedom of speech.

What do you think of this? Please share your thoughts.
