The microblogging site Twitter has made it easier to log in or sign up. Its users can now sign up/login using their Apple ID or Google account. Twitter had already been seen experimenting with additional sign-in/sign-up options on its site. New users can now join up using their Apple or Google accounts, but existing users should double-check that their Twitter email address matches their Apple ID or Google account.
Twitter Support announced the new functionality with a tweet. It mentions that Twitter users can now use their Apple or Google accounts to log in or sign up for the microblogging platform. The latter is available on both the app and the web, whereas Apple ID is currently only available on iOS devices. According to Twitter, the Web version of Twitter should get Apple account login functionality soon, but there’s no word on whether Android users will get it.
The Google account login feature will be available on Android, iOS, and desktop apps and in the web browser. The registration procedure has also been simplified, as it no longer requires users to provide their email address, password, name, or user handle. Twitter will automatically offer user handle possibilities to a new user. To locate and interact with current users on the site, new users need to pick their languages and sync their smartphone contacts.
