5 Ways To Manage Multiple Twitter Accounts

If you have a variety of interests you love to tweet about, you might have more than one Twitter account. For instance, people with multiple blogs have a separate Twitter account for each blog. It’s annoying having to log in to each account separately. It’s time consuming. You can easily manage multiple Twitter accounts without wasting valuable time by using these five tips and tools.

Hootsuite

Hootsuite is one of the best platforms for managing not just Twitter, but a wide variety of social media accounts. The free version allows up to three different accounts. You also get free basic scheduling and analytics. For up to 100 accounts, you’ll have to upgrade to Pro for $9.99 per month. I actually  have five accounts I currently manage through Hootsuite. My advice is if you only have six or less is to create two Hootsuite accounts. I have my laptop logged in to one and my tablet in to the other. 

Digsby

Digsby is best known as an IM client, but the desktop client has become so much more. It handles IMs, emails, social networks and more. It features notifications and surprisingly powerful organization to keep track of all your accounts. The site provides a detailed guide on installation, setting up your account and adding in the accounts you want to keep up with. The only downside is the screen can seem cluttered at times. 

 Multiple Browsers

If you only have two or three Twitter accounts, you don’t really need any special tools to manage your accounts. You can use a different browser to log in to each account. For instance, I logged in to one account on Chrome, another on Firefox and my third on Aviator. All you have to do to switch between each browser is press Alt+Tab. You’ll still need to log in to each separate account for each browser, but you can keep those windows open all day to manage your tweets.

Incognito/Private Windows

One of the reasons you can’t use the same browser for multiple accounts is because a cookie is stored showing you’ve logged in to Twitter. The cookie doesn’t expire until you log out. There is a workaround for this. Open one Twitter account in a normal browser window and a second in an incognito window. Incognito windows store their own cookies and work the same as opening a different browser completely. You can access incognito or private windows by using the Menu/Settings icon at the top right corner of Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer.

Create A Schedule

No matter what tool or method you use, you can still get carried away trying to keep up with all your different Twitter accounts. To better manage your time on Twitter, create a set schedule for each account. Using spreadsheet software, such as Excel or Google Sheets, is the easiest way to do this. 

Start by listing all of your accounts. List the amount of time you want to spend using each account daily. The next step is to list what time you want to log in to each account daily. Remember, you can spread out your daily time allowance for each account throughout the day. For instance, you might log in to Account A at 4 PM, 6 PM and 8 PM and only spend 10 minutes at a time for a daily total of 30 minutes. 

List what actions you want to take during each time frame. For instance, you could retweet 10 tweets and post two new ones. This keeps you on track, especially if you’re using Twitter for business. 

A final step is to list all your tweets for a given day. All you have to do is copy and paste your tweets when you’re ready. Think of your spreadsheet as your daily schedule and planner. It’s even more effective when combined with a tool like Hootsuite that lets you schedule posts in advance. No matter what method you use, a schedule is beneficial.
