Managing multiple accounts on TweetDeck

Feb 19, 2018 Microblogging site and social networking site Twitter on Friday announced pulling the plug on its Mac desktop app. Support for Twitter for Mac will end in 30 days, according to The Verge. The app has never been as robust as third-party clients like Tweetbot or even Twitter’s in-house services like Tweetdeck. Because Twitter killed its official app for Mac last March, third-party apps are all you can use (except for TweetDeck). Twitter would prefer desktop users use Twitter.com.

Select a default account:

You can select which of your accounts to use as your default account. This is the account you will compose a Tweet from, like a Tweet from, and reply to Tweets with.

  1. Click Accounts in the navigation bar.
  2. Expand the account you wish to set as the default by clicking the down arrow.
  3. Toggle on the Default account option.

Tweeting from multiple accounts:

TweetDeck allows you to easily Tweet from multiple accounts. To select which accounts you would like to Tweet from:

  1. Click on the Tweet button at the top of the navigation bar; the accounts you have authorized will be listed at the top (you can hover over an icon to see the username of the account).
  2. Select which account you would like to Tweet from (if the account is selected, it will be highlighted with a green checkmark).
    Tip:Schedule Tweets (with or without an asset) in advance for any account connected to your TweetDeck.

Liking from multiple accounts:

TweetDeck allows you to like a Tweet from multiple accounts.

  1. Click on the more icon on the Tweet.
  2. From the menu that pops up, click on Like from accounts…
  3. Click Like next to the account(s) you’d like to like from.

Following from multiple accounts:

TweetDeck allows you to follow someone from multiple accounts. You can also follow someone by clicking follow on their profile, but only your default account will follow them.

  1. Click on the account that you wish to follow; a profile will appear.
  2. Click on the more icon and then select Follow from accounts...
  3. Choose which accounts you would like to follow from.
    Note: The same instructions apply when unfollowing an account.

Why is it more secure to log in with a personal Twitter username?

If you log in using a personal username that only you have the password for, you can safely access your team accounts without any risk to account security. We recommend that you use login verification for added security.
