Getting started with TweetDeck

TweetDeck gives the Twitter experience more flexibility by letting you view multiple timelines in one easy interface. It includes a host of features to help advanced users get the most of Twitter: manage multiple Twitter accounts, schedule Tweets for posting in the future, build Tweet collections, and more. Simply sign in with your personal Twitter account at to get started.

If you use TweetDeck in a corporate or team environment, read about setting up a team account here.

TweetDeck is currently available at or the Mac app store.

To start using TweetDeck:

  1. Go to, or open the desktop* or Chrome app.
  2. Sign in with your Twitter account. We recommend that you use a Twitter account that is not shared with other individuals.
  3. Once you're signed in, you can connect multiple Twitter accounts to your TweetDeck account.

* If you are using an old version of our desktop app for Mac (older than Mac: 3.5.0), you will not be able to sign in with a Twitter account or create a new account until you upgrade to the latest version. However, if you have an existing TweetDeck account you can continue to use the older version until it is deprecated.

To connect multiple Twitter accounts in your TweetDeck:

  1. Click Accounts in the navigation bar.
  2. Enter your Twitter credentials, then click Add Account.
  3. You’re ready to use TweetDeck! Next, just add some columns.

Managing multiple accounts

To remove an account from TweetDeck:

  1. Click Accounts in the navigation bar.
  2. Expand the account you wish to delete by clicking the down arrow.
  3. Click Leave this room and confirm by clicking Leave.
Note: The account you are signed into TweetDeck with cannot be removed from TweetDeck.

Selecting a default account

You can select which of your accounts to use as your default account. This is the account you will compose a Tweet from, like a Tweet from, and reply to Tweets with.

  1. Click Accounts in the navigation bar.
  2. Expand the account you wish to set as the default by clicking the down arrow.
  3. Toggle on the Default account option.

Tweeting from multiple accounts

TweetDeck allows you to tweet from multiple accounts easily. You can even post Tweets from multiple accounts at once! To select which accounts you would like to tweet from:

  1. Click on the compose Tweet button at the top of the navigation bar; the accounts you have authorized will be listed at the top (you can hover over an icon to see the username of the account).
  2. Select which accounts you would like to Tweet from; you can click on all of them or only one (if the account is selected, the Twitter icon will be highlighted).
    Tip: Schedule Tweets in advance for any account connected to your TweetDeck! Read about how in this article.

Liking from multiple accounts

TweetDeck allows you to like a Tweet from multiple accounts.

  1. Click on the ellipsis (•••) icon on the Tweet.
  2. From the menu that pops up, click on Like from accounts…
  3. Click Like next to the account(s) you’d like to like from.

Following from multiple accounts

 TweetDeck allows you to follow a user from multiple accounts, all at once. You can also follow a user by clicking follow on their profile, but only your default account will follow them.

  1. Click on the account that you wish to follow; a user profile will appear.
  2. Click on the account icon (looks like a person) and then select Follow from accounts...
  3. Choose which accounts you would like to follow from.
Note: The same applies when unfollowing an account.

Why is it more secure to sign in with a personal Twitter username?

If you sign in using a personal username that only you have the password for, you can safely access your team accounts without any risk to account security. We recommend that you use login verification for added security.
