Users can now sign up for Twitter using their Google or Apple IDs


Twitter has made it easier to log in or sign up. Its users can now sign up/log in using their Apple ID or Google account.

The new functionality was announced through a tweet by Twitter Support. It mentions that Twitterati can now log in or sign up to the micro-blogging platform with either their Apple or Google accounts. The latter works on the app and the Web while the former, Apple ID, only works on iOS devices as of now. Twitter says that Apple account login functionality should soon arrive for the Web version, but there is no mention if Android users will be getting it.

The Google account login functionality will work on Android, iOS, and desktop apps as well as Web browser. The sign up process has also become easier as it bypasses the need to enter an email address, password, name, and user handle. User handle options will automatically be suggested for a new user by Twitter. The process now only requires new users to select their languages and sync their smartphone contacts to find and connect with existing users on the platform.
