Edited by Grimm, Leomar Umpad, Eng
You are watching VisiHow. Today we are going to show you how to download, install and set up Twitter on your iPhone 6.
To start off with, give your lock screen button a single press on the right side of your phone.
That will open up the lock screen.
You could swipe across and enter your PIN or you can just give your thumb a little press at the bottom - or index finger or whatever finger you may have.
Then, we are going to be looking for the App Store - blue icon, white circle, with white little A inside.
We give that a single press.
One press on that is going to open up the App Store.
In the App store you will see the selection of amazing, wonderful, fantastic, and incredible applications.
At the moment, the application that we are interested in, is the one we are going to search for called Twitter.
Let's go up here.
Now we are going to tap in the top area (search tab).
We are going to press.
T, W and you see Twitter at the very top.
One tap on Twitter will open up Twitter application.
Next, we are going to press Twitter to take us to the actual application.
We can scroll down and see reviews and information, screenshots, photos and other details about twitter.
Specifically we are looking to press the Get button which will then turn to Install option.
If you have previously installed Twitter on another Apple device, then you will have a little icon with a down arrow.
If like me, you have already install it, you will have the option to open it.
Since I have not set the application up previously.
This is a new tutorial on a new application we will be following all of the steps to complete this process.
Let's press Open one time.
This is going to open up Twitter.
You see the message, "Hello. Welcome to Twitter."
You have the option to Sign up which can be done at this icon, which I am pointing right now.
You can Log in using the Log in icon, which I am not going to get.
In my case I am going to tap on Log in since I already have an account.
The first thing you need to do is enter in your phone, email or username.
Then, you can enter your Password.
Since this is the internet I am going to move off screen just a moment to write my password.
Once your Password has been entered you tap Log in and in a minute, it logs you in.
Twitter would like to send you notifications. Let's go a head and press OK.
Twitter would like to access my location while I use the app.
Fine, let's allow that. Later we can disable that.
Now, once you are in the Twitter application you will notice that it is a little bit different than what you normally have on the desktop application.
To start with, at the bottom, we have our Home menu .
Home takes me and lets me see whatever every one else I know, or I follow, or I keep up with, has twitted.
Notifications will inform me have I notices of anyone else has given me, or has put up information on where I see them.
Next we can tap on Messages.
Messages will show us a list of people who I am following, or who follow on me, or who we have information, or messages to shared with.
Finally we have the option of Me, which shows different information about myself - things that I have put up anything like posts or random wonderful details.
You can scroll down or push down as I am.
See the zoom in on the photos of the top.
Again, that is the Me option.
There is your Messages option.
There is your Notification option.
There is the Home option.
Now, there's only a major difference between any of these if you go back.
If you look at the top of Home, you got Search and you got Messages.
You have got something different in Messages.
We can create a new chat.
On Me, you have the same options.
Let's go to Messages and show you the chat thing.
If I tap on that, I can enter a name, or I can put on something for someone. Whatever I type in gets sent to them as a chat.
If I do not want them I untap.
Tap to add, and untap to remove them.
If I do not want to make a chat and decide not to send them a new message.
I just tap back.
Now, I am no longer sending a message.
I will go back to the Home screen so we can finish showing you things.
The other icon in Home is the Plus (+) thing.
You can tap the Plus (+) icon and you can use it to follow or to add someone.
We are currently not following. You can use the tailored searches or you can search for Popular - popular on television, music, entertainment, sports, etc.etc.
Now, we will tap back one time.
If you look further up, we have over here our search option which allows you to search Twitter for different things you might be looking for.
You can also tap the Write New Tweet button to compose a new Tweet.
Twitter would like to access your photo - which is fine.
You can add in anything you are doing here.
Then you can simply tap Tweet.
If you do not want to tap it, just backspace.
You do not have to actually Tweet anything if you do not want to.
Let's go back to Me one time.
While you are on the Me option, you also have the ability to access your settings, add in you Profile, and to view your list of friends.
Let's tap on the Profile icon.
I can tap on Plus icon.
Now, I can create a new account or using the existing account. I do not want to do either of those.
I can check on my list, I can get help, I can sign up, or I can actually tap my Settings.
See what I have.
Here are my Twitter details: my Sound Effects, Text Size - either I want to have larger or smaller, Accessibility, Services, and I have a reading list. If I want to learn about the program, this is going to tell me the version information and others. Now you tap on Done to go back.
If I want to edit my profile I can tap on Edit Profile.
I can change the Header, I could change my Name, my Location, I can change my Website, and can change my tag line.
This is most of what you can do on your mobile.
There are some things on mobile that you find easier doing on the desktop - many of those are profile related though.
Go back to Home.
Now, let's press the Home button on our iPhone.
This will take us back to the Home screen.
Let's give a quick double press here.
What we are going to do is close our App Store icon.
Now we can go back to doing whatever it was what we have been doing before adding and setting up Twitter.
This concludes our tutorial on how to install, setup and get started with using twitter on the iPhone 6. Thank you for choosing VisiHow. We look forward to seeing you in our future videos and we hope that this been a helpful tutorial. Have a great day!
