Twitter now supports Google and Apple ID for access and registration

Apple introduced it at WWDC 2019 as an alternative to login services from Facebook and Google. The company claims Sign in with Apple prevents tracking, and it allows you to hide your email by generating secondary addresses that then forward any messages from apps and services to your regular inbox.

Twitter is offering two more ways for users to access their accounts. Starting today, you may log in using your Google ID to utilise the service’s online client and mobile app. Meanwhile, on iOS, sign in using Apple now supports the Twitter app, and the firm plans to add support for online logins “soon.” Both services may also be used to establish a new Twitter account.

Highlights

  • Either way, Twitter adding support for both Google and Apple IDs should make life a bit easier for new users. But we’ll note here one of the usual things about this feature rollout is that Twitter offers its own login service you can use to access some websites. The internet can sometimes be a weird place.
