How To Add An Admin Team On Twitter
12th March 2018
It’s often believed that Twitter doesn’t have an option to add users as admin to an account, but that hasn’t been the case for a while.
Although Facebook were first to allow pages to have a team of admin, Twitter since at least 2015 has let accounts be managed by multiple users, without sharing the account password.
Adding a team of admin can be essential for businesses to manage their account, post regularly and share the responsibility of contributing to their social media account.
How To: Add Admin To Twitter Account
In order to add an admin, sign in to Twitter and then go to tweetdeck.twitter.com. On the left hand side you will see a variety of options, but for now all we need is “accounts”. This will open up a new tab which will have a few options, including “manage team” which you should click.
This will open up with a box which allows you to type the username of the Twitter account which you wish to add as an admin. Once added there will be the option to change the user’s role from the default option of contributor to admin. Although we should stress, giving admin access will allow a user to change the account password and the admin team.
Why Have An Admin Team On Twitter?
Large companies will usually employee staff in-house or hire a company, such as Northstar Marketing, to run their social media accounts.
Giving out a password to a company Twitter account creates obvious security problems, but being able to add a team of admin without putting the account at risk is the ideal solution.
