There can be numerous reasons behind the need for managing multiple Twitter accounts. If you are a social media manager, it is inevitable that you will be in charge of multiple Twitter accounts of your clients that you need to manage on a daily basis. Or you might be a brand on social media that needs to create multiple accounts in order to support different objectives of your business on Twitter. Brands or organizations do not need to have an international presence in order to create multiple twitter accounts. When you have a huge audience, multiple products, or different departments with different goals; then you have to create more accounts to obtain relevant traffic from twitter.
Whatever your reason may be, you need a platform to manage all the Twitter accounts from a single interface instead of jumping from one account to another. You need a perfect strategy to manage, monitor, listen to, and respond to multiple Twitter accounts in a timely manner. You need to monitor, listen, and respond to all the messages that you receive without spending loads of time on the platform logging in and logging out.
Thus, in this blog, we will show you the ways in which you can manage multiple Twitter accounts from your desktop as well from your phone seamlessly.
Ways to manage multiple Twitter accounts
Twitter allows you to manage multiple accounts straight from the site at the same time, but the limit is only 5! Thus, if you are in the need to look after more than 5 accounts together, you cannot do that from Twitter’s platform itself. You will have to take the help of a social media scheduling tool in order to manage more accounts and level up your Twitter marketing strategy.
Hence, basically there are only 2 ways in which you can take care of multiple Twitter accounts:
- From Twitter’s platform (When you want to manage up to 5 accounts)
- A social media scheduler / Twitter post scheduler (For more than 5 accounts)
Let’s have a look at both the options one by one.
Switching between accounts on Twitter
- Log in to any one of your Twitter accounts. While on the homepage, you will be able to see your profile name at the end of the menu on the left-hand side of the screen. Click on the arrow and a pop-up will appear. Select the option of ‘Add an existing account’.
- A pop-up window will appear asking you to fill your login credentials. Enter the Twitter handle/Phone/Email address and password for the account that you want to add.
- Now the newly added account’s homepage will appear. Go to the left-hand side panel again and click on the username shown at the bottom of the screen. You will be able to see all the accounts and can switch between any of them. Repeat the same procedure for adding more accounts.
Using a social media scheduling tool to manage multiple Twitter accounts
Tedious tasks require more effort to be done efficiently. Well, not always. To make your work super easy, you can use RecurPost, our social media management platform, to manage multiple Twitter accounts from a single dashboard. (Not only Twitter, but you can also manage other social platforms, such as Instagram, LinkedIn, Facebook, and GMB!)
Using the Twitter post scheduler provided by RecurPost, you can view, schedule, and post content on all your Twitter accounts from the same interface. So no more need to toggle between multiple Twitter accounts!
To get started, you just have to register for a RecurPost account. You can begin with a free account, experience the tool, and then upgrade if you wish to! Even if you do not wish to upgrade to a paid plan, you can always stick to the free one.
Now let’s dive into the steps that you need to follow to make the most out of RecurPost.
Step 1: Getting Registered with RecurPost
On the next screen, RecurPost will ask you to fill in the following details:
- Email Address
- First name and Last name
Click on ‘Create an account’ and that’s it. You will be taken to the dashboard of your account.
Step 2: Connecting multiple Twitter accounts
On the left-hand side of your account’s dashboard, there will be a panel from where you can connect social accounts. Select ‘Connect Twitter’ and a pop up will appear containing all the options of accounts that you can add.
Click on the ‘Profile’ button below Twitter’s column. The next page will ask you to fill in your Twitter username and password.
Enter the details and click on ‘Sign in’. You will then be redirected to RecurPost’s dashboard and the Twitter profile will appear on the left-hand panel.
Note: The free plan allows you to add only one social account of each kind. You can refer to the paid plans and select the one that suits your needs the best. The plans start from only $15/month!
Step 3: Scheduling tweets
After connecting social accounts, you can start making content libraries and add your posts to them.
While creating a post update, you can use emojis in the text. You can also create a bag of tags (group of hashtags) to use while adding posts. Images and videos can be uploaded in the post too.
After adding all the details, you can preview the post and see how it will appear on your feed. Along with Twitter, you can also post it to other social accounts at the same time. You can either upload the post immediately by clicking on ‘Post now’, or you can schedule to post it at a later date and time. You can even shorten the URL of the post which makes it easier for sharing.
RecurPost offers bulk scheduling, which will help you in saving a lot of time while sharing your posts at the perfect frequency.
Step 4: Tracking reports
RecurPost offers an amazing feature of Reports, using which you can analyze the audience insights, engagement levels, check out the demographics of your target audience, and much more.
Go to the ‘Reports’ section. By default, you will see the reports of all the connected accounts together. You can filter the reports according to individual accounts. Select the account and you will see the following graphs:
a. Audience engagement:
In this graph, you will be able to see the number of posts made and likes and comments received.
Here, you will get a lot of valuable information. The number of impressions received, profile views, reach, and the number of followers gained will be visible. Apart from that, you will also see the number of clicks that people made to call you, visit your website, see the directions, email, or text you.
c. Audience country:
A pie chart will be displayed in this section, bifurcating your target audience according to the country they are from. You can hover on different ranges to see the number of people from each country. It will also be written in the box beside the chart.
d. Audience demographics:
In this section, your followers and fans will be divided according to their gender and age group. But remember that, some people don’t provide their complete information (birthdate) while making an account, so there might be slight differences in the total number of followers in this report.
e. Post performance:
For the selected time period, you can see the posts that you uploaded, post type (image or video), number of likes, and comments received. You can see the most favorite and popular posts among all of them too – sorted according to the likes and comments received on each of them.
Managing multiple Twitter accounts using RecurPost’s app
It is a fact that you need to pay constant attention to your social media accounts. But, it is also a fact that you cannot sit behind your laptops for the entire day. That’s where RecurPost’s app can help you. Using it, you will be able to manage your accounts from anywhere and anytime.
When it is time to publish your posts according to the schedules set, you will receive a push notification on your phone. You just need to click it and your post will be uploaded.
After scheduling, you can also check how your content will appear on the feed and decide if any changes need to be made. A consistency and harmony could be achieved, thus helping to improve your social branding.
Make use of Tweet variations
Unlike any other social media scheduling tool, RecurPost allows you to create tweet variations. How will it help you? According to Twitter’s policies, you cannot post the same tweet more than once. If you do so, it will be considered as violation of policies and actions can be taken against your account.
Thus, by creating tweet variations, you will be able to post the same message in different ways. You can also use this feature when you wish to share the same message from different accounts.
RecurPost makes it easier to engage with, analyze, monitor, and schedule tweets on multiple Twitter accounts from a unified dashboard. It will also study the engagement levels on your accounts and suggest the best times to post, enabling you to upload the right content at the right time. Apart from this, there are a lot of other features like white-label reports, recurring updates, social media calendar, team management, etc. So without wasting any time, click here to start managing your social sites using RecurPost!
