Twitter is an American microblogging and social networking service on which users can post and interact with messages known as “tweets”. Registered users of Twitter can post, like, and retweet tweets, but unregistered users only have access to read them. Users access Twitter through its website interface or its mobile-device application software. The Twitter service is provided by Twitter, Inc., which is a corporation based in San Francisco, California, and has more than 25 offices around the world. The tweets were originally restricted to 140 characters, but then in November 2017, the limit was doubled to 280 for non-CJK languages, although audio and video tweets remain limited to 140 seconds for most accounts.
Twitter was created by Jack Dorsey, Noah Glass, Biz Stone, and Evan Williams in March 2006 and launched in July of that same year. It had gained a lot of popularity as the years passed by and in 2013, it was named as one of the ten most-visited websites and has been described as “the SMS of the Internet”. Recent news brings in this micro-blogging site, Twitter, which is working to make it possible to sign in to your account through a connected Google Account. Before signing in to Twitter people had to place their phone numbers or email addresses and go through a lot of procedures but not anymore.
As discovered by app investigator Jane Wong, Twitter is looking into enabling Google Account integration, 9To5Google reported. For all these years Google has allowed its users to sign in or log in to different apps by using their Google accounts and to be honest it is much easier and convenient in that way instead of having to log into the various apps through the log procedures. I feel that this is one bit which everyone will agree to as when opening a new app we are asked to sign in or log in and instead of typing every detail it is much faster to click the option of sign in with a Google account which as a result helps us to skip a lot of steps, for instance, filling in our personal details, our email address or phone number and sometimes maybe we don’t even have to choose a password because we have linked our Google account to the app.
So presumably, the sign-in page of Twitter on the web now shows three options, “Sign up”, “Log in” and a third option, “Continue with Google”. Now, this button should probably allow you to attach your Google Account to an existing Twitter account, or create a new Twitter account with your Google Account details, or log in to your Twitter account if you’ve already associated it with your Google Account. But there has been a bit of up and downs there and it didn’t go that smoothly as it does with other apps but not to worry I am sure that Twitter will fix that right up.
Lastly, for a tiny bit of more important information, Twitter has said that ‘if your Google Account should be compromised in any way, an attacker would then also have access to your Twitter account. Or, if your account were ever banned, you’d be unable to get into Twitter’. So do be careful Twitter users and my dear readers it’s your utmost necessity to keep your Google account safe and secure from a third person’s hands.
