Outsourcing your Twitter content and advertising

If you want someone else to manage your business's Twitter content and ads, you’ll need to give them to your Twitter account.

Twitter has a multi-user login option which allows multiple people to access your account. It’s a secure way to manage your Twitter account as you choose the levels of permission you grant and never have share your password. 

In this article, we’ll cover how you can give access to someone else to manage your Twitter account and Twitter ad account.
