The latest Twitter updates support third-party sign-up whereby you can choose to login to the bird app either with your Apple ID or your Google account. This tool also allows users on these third-party accounts or ID to be able to sync with their existing Twitter account — this feature is possible if the email used in creating the Twitter account is the same.
Other social media have reportedly integrated third-party login or signup on their respective platforms — Twitter’s involvement with this tool is not something different but the same streamlined process of creating your Twitter account with third-party emails or ID.
It is worth noting this feature does not require a passcode or an email when you use Twitter via third-parties accessibility. For context, after creating a Twitter accounts with either Google or Apple, the bird app syncs the same contact info you previously used on other third parties by auto, without refilling the same contact details.
Last month, Twitter introduced this concept exclusively for its users using the beta version of the bird app. It is gradually becoming a viral feature since its initial test phase was a success.
“Sign on with ease and start scrolling your timeline. Now, when you log in or sign up to join the conversation on Twitter, you have the option to use: Your Google Account on the app and on the web, Or your Apple ID on iOS, and soon on the web,” conforming to Twitter Support’s tweet.
Twitter is yet to fully develop this feature which depicts why the sign-in experience via third-party is limited. For context, when you attempt creating a Twitter account with Google, it is accessible with different OS platforms, including Android, iOS, and the web.
While creating a bird app account via third-party sign-in on the iOS platform can only accredit its Apple ID — you can not Sync your Google account with Twitter attempting to sign up on an iOS platform. On the web, the same thing is expected — you can not Sync your Apple ID with Twitter sign-in via the web.
On the other hand, Twitter’s third-party sign-in experience seems biased whereby you cannot sign up your Twitter account on Android as it is created with an Apple ID. It is worth noting that the Apple sign-up button is not visible on Android devices — I guess it explains why other OS platforms such as Mac cannot access this feature.
Twitter seems to have perfected this feature integrating it with Google account and its OS — you can disconnect your Google account after you created a Twitter account via the third-party sync, as well as changing your passcode which is available for the web OS.
With Apple ID, Twitter’s third-party seems less functional whereby you can only disconnect your account after a sign-up, but you cannot change your passcode — disconnecting your Apple ID from Twitter is accessible via the web OS.
