Twitter has officially launched the ability to sign-up and/or log in to the app using Google or Apple credentials.
The option will use the data already stored on a device to access Twitter, and therefore users will no longer be required to enter their log-in details to enter the platform.
Once a user has updated the Twitter app to the latest version, the option will automatically become available.
Sign on with ease and start scrolling your timeline.
Now, when you log in or sign up to join the conversation on Twitter, you have the option to use:
▪️ Your Google Account on the app and on web
▪️ Or your Apple ID on iOS, and soon on web pic.twitter.com/Nf56H1ghmY

Once this new feature is used, the associated Google or Apple credentials will be linked to the user’s Twitter profile automatically.
This stops users from having to re-enter log-in details each time they try to access the app. The feature, however, will require that each Google or Apple account has the same email as the one associated with the Twitter profile, to ensure the info matches up for security reasons.
The new option is set to streamline the user log-in process and reduce the number of passwords needed.
The new option has been rolled out globally to all users since Twitter’s announcement on Monday. Twitter will also allow for web sign-in using Apple ID soon.
