This may sound easy. "Sure, only having multiple Twitter accounts, what can go wrong." But managing multiple Twitter accounts includes many tricky points, from purpose to safety Twitter management tools to growth. Let us help you in this journey.

Being one of the most popular and condemned social media platforms, Twitter is a vast ocean of information, entertainment, and social interaction between millions of people every minute. As a result of this complexity, this mass of social media includes millions of entities representing fake, impersonated, and side accounts.

Beyond these accounts, Twitter is flooded by bot accounts to create political propaganda or serve a social agenda. According to a 2017 study conducted over bot accounts on Twitter, 48 million bot accounts exist. It is not unrealistic to expect that this number multiplied in the last five years.

One of the reasons for this vast mass of fake accounts is Twitter's attitude. Twitter welcomes fake and anonymous accounts more than other social media platforms. Twitter Terms of Service about impersonation strongly underlines that users are free to use any accounts to accept specific conditions we will discuss.

We will break down and analyze every tiny detail on how to manage multiple Twitter accounts on your desktop and mobile device. After that, we will find out what we can do to manage our multiple accounts successfully and remind you of the essential safety tricks.

Who needs more than one Twitter account?

Almost everybody, yes, you heard me right, almost everybody. We can guess that most of you folks reading this now already have more than one Twitter account. But the others may ask that "Why do I need multiple Twitter accounts?" I will explain Twitter-possible scenarios you may need to use more than one Twitter account.

It may vary from creating your business profile for your little bakery store while not deflecting your personal account to having an academic account that you regularly share about sustainable energy while covering your feelings in a private account with your social circle.

Also, personal branding has been one of the hottest topics of our medium in recent years and probably will be more important in this decade. People started noticing the importance of personal branding via the "influencer" market; thus, individuals would like to keep their social media accounts prestigious and saleable. According to recent research, %86 of young people want to become an influencer or earn money from social media to some extent.

You need multiple Twitter accounts for many purposes.
Indeed!

Everyone can observe that the personal account concept is becoming more and more common on every social media platform. Yet this need for personal branding also destroys the freedom of expression on social media. To satisfy this personal branding marketing, you should look excellent, elite, wise, and entertaining on your main account. Side-accounts help people share their boring routines, private feelings, and bad jokes without destroying their image in the main narrative.

So, in a nutshell, the following situations will make you manage multiple Twitter accounts eventually at a point in the future.

  • Managing Offical accounts such as state-owned entities and corporation accounts
  • Boosting the sales of your products and services on Twitter
  • Creating the "best" meme account on Twitter
  • Building a social media page such as "sports news" or "best places to visit."
  • Sharing your "private" tweets on much more minor and anonymous accounts freely
  • Stating controversial opinions without the fear of being charged, especially Twitter denies sharing its users' data with governments (click for the privacy policy of Twitter)

and the list goes on …

Is it okay to have multiple Twitter accounts?

So we know that multiple Twitter accounts may have great use for each individual on their cases. One must ask, under what conditions? Yes, Twitter is more welcoming to anonymous profiles, side accounts, or impersonation, yet this does not mean you cannot violate the terms of service. It seems like Twitter will defend its anonymous policy despite the harsh critics.

The most essential "no-no" to keep in mind is impersonation accounts. Twitter demands that the impersonation accounts should accept the conditions. If you are a creator of an account that fakes a real person or a fan account, you are in trouble unless you play the game with the rules of Twitter.

So, you have to:

  • Openly state that the account is an impersonation and does not have any connections between the actual person/entity it is faking (the best way is to display that info in the bio)
  • Avoid copying every material directly from the existing account; otherwise, it could violate the policy.
  • And be ready for the reporting issues because people will nonetheless report your efforts. So executing the rules stated by Twitter is crucial.

Another point, you have to manage your Twitter accounts carefully. Many users of multiple Twitter accounts often post tweets on the wrong accounts. It is straightforward to switch between multiple Twitter accounts, so it is also easy to make mistakes.

Primarily it requires instant switching between accounts. You have to reply to your tweet from your account (many politicians and corporations do that to boost their image on social media). I assure you, getting caught in this way is quite shameful. Here is a funny story like this situation.

Last but not least, if there is something more challenging than creating a popular Twitter account and managing it, try it while doing the same thing for multiple accounts. Creating different, creative, and attractive content for each account is not a simple task. Especially if your accounts are business profiles, personal branding accounts, or pages with daily routine tasks.

How to post to multiple Twitter accounts?

Keeping all your accounts active and famous is not an easy challenge to overcome. It would be insufficient not to use supportive 3rd party apps that create innovation, automation, and growth around your accounts. It brings us to this topic.

The Bad way:

The most basic and tiring course of operating multiple Twitter accounts is constantly switching between the accounts. Both the mobile app of Twitter and desktop web page allow that, yet it could be pretty frustrating compared to other methods.

Step #1: You need to login into one of your Twitter accounts.

In the bottom left corner, you can see the panel to create a new account or add an existing one. Both of these options can help you manage multiple Twitter accounts.

The Meh way:

If you are afraid you could forget or miss switching between accounts while using them heavily in the daily routine, you could use a trick. It is easier to manage if you open multiple different browsers on the same device or use various devices for your accounts.

You have to login into each account in each different browser/device. This is definitely better than switching between them constantly and faster to operate. Yet we have a better and solid solution for all these problems.
