    To begin, we turn the phone on by pressing the Power button located on the top of the phone.

    Once the phone has been activated, we will see the Lock screen.
    To unlock the phone, we swipe the screen upwards. Once the phone is unlocked, we will see the Home screen; and there will be icons at the bottom of the screen. We need to find the "Settings" menu now. To do that, we need to swipe the notifications panel down.

    First, we need to have our Twitter account synchronized and added to the HTC One M8.
    We can find the step-by-step tutorial on how to do that on the VisiHow web site. Now, we have the "Twitter" option almost at the bottom of the screen. The option has a Twitter icon.

    We have the "Authorize HTC Sense" option at the bottom that we should tap.
    An information box will be shown. In this video, it says "You have authorized the Twitter account TomTomthumb391. If you de-authorize it, your contacts will be removed from People. Do you want to de-authorize it?" What this means is that if we de-authorize our account, we will remove our contacts from the "People" section of the HTC One M8; but the phone will still allow us to use the Twitter account. The phone will just not synchronize it completely. It might be good for us if we particularly do not want to synchronize our Twitter contacts with the contacts on the phone and keep them separately. We still will be able to use our Twitter account.

  12. 12
    If we want to de-authorize the Twitter account on the HTC One M8, then tap "OK".
    The phone is going to de-authorize the account, but the HTC One M8 will still allow us to use it. It is not as if we are removing the account from the HTC One M8. We are just changing the parameters.

    If we want to authorize our Twitter account, we repeat the same process by tapping "Authorize HTC Sense".
    The phone will ask us for our permission to authorize Twitter to allow it to synchronize our Twitter account with the phone completely. The phone will say "Authorize Twitter for HTC Sense to use your account? This enables Twitter for HTC Sense to work with your Twitter account, with your permission."

    We can tap the word "ALLOW" in the gray bar.
    The phone is going to authenticate the permission by authorizing the connection and synchronization. The phone will show that the Twitter account is authorized.
