Managing multiple Twitter accounts on a browser is a bit of a pain since you have to log out of one and log into the other every time you want to operate each of the accounts. If you’re like me, managing more than one Twitter account, QuickTweet, a neat little Chrome extension is what you’ll need. This handy tool will help you switch between the two accounts quite easily and make it so much easier to manage your Twitter handles, especially if you have a handful of them. Here’s how it works.
How to Manage Multiple Twitter Accounts with QuickTweet
Head over to the Chrome Store and download and install the QuickTweet extension.
Once installed you’ll notice the QuickTweet icon to the right of the Address bar. Tap the icon and click the here link to start configuring your Twitter accounts.
In the QuickTweet Options page, enter the name, username, and password of your Twitter accounts. You can configure up to 10 Twitter accounts on the page. save your settings.
Now you can simply tap the QuickTweet icon at the top of the screen to switch between your Twitter handles.
Don’t be too concerned if you see a lot of pages loading before you see your actual account. The tool does a bit of automation work by logging out of any accounts you previously signed into and then logging you in with a fresh account. It just doesn’t happen in the background as you would expect but rather makes a clumsy changeover on screen. Apart from that single drawback the tool does make the switch over quite conveniently.
One other cool feature of QuickTweet is that if you need to log into any of your Twitter accounts via another site, QuickTweet will provide you with the requisite auto-login options to make that job easier too!
The account passwords are encrypted in your local storage, but you may choose to manually log in to the accounts if you are concerned about third party breaches.
