Did you know you can connect your iPad with your Twitter account? Associating your iPad with Twitter allows you to easily share pictures, websites and other tidbits to your Twitter followers without the need to go into a separate application. This can be very handy for those who are active on the social network, but before you can take advantage of it, you need to setup Twitter on your iPad.
- First, go into the iPad's Settings. This is the icon that looks like gears in motion.
- Next, scroll down the left-side menu until you locate Twitter. Choosing this menu option will bring up the Twitter settings.
- Once you have Twitter's settings pulled up, tap the "Add Account" option. This will bring you to a screen prompting you to enter your user name and password for Twitter. You can also create a new account if you aren't already on Twitter.
- "Update Contacts" is a pretty cool feature that will add Twitter accounts to your contacts even if you don't follow them on Twitter. Don't worry, this doesn't spam your contacts with invites to Twitter, it simply uses the email address in the contact information to find the Twitter user name.
Note: You don't need to install the Twitter app to use the integration features with your iPad. In fact, you can use any one of the many different Twitter clients for the iPad instead of the official application.
