Making the social media platform a lot more accessible, convenient and lucrative over the past few months, Twitter has now announced new features that include third-party signups for Google and Apple users.
Twitter has introduced an all-new, third-party login support, letting users create accounts and log in to the social network with their Apple or Google accounts. With this new feature, Twitter also allows you to link your existing account with an Apple or Google one, as long as the emails are the same.
The feature is currently not available to all. Signing in with Google is possible on iOS, Android, and Web, but doing so with Apple is currently iOS-only. On Android, signing into an account created with Apple doesn’t appear to be possible. The current version of the Twitter for Mac desktop app doesn’t seem to support either login method.
On the other hand, the social media platform has also partnered up with news agencies to battle misinformation that has been spreading in the app. “We’re excited to share that Twitter is collaborating with The Associated Press (AP) and Reuters to expand our efforts to identify and elevate credible information on Twitter,” the announcement on Twitter’s website reads.
According to the announcement, the company is committed to making sure that users find reliable information while using the app. The announcement also mentions that the social media platform has a Curation team that “helps give people context to make informed decisions about what they see on Twitter.”
