    To begin, 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.

    Once the phone has been unlocked, we will see the home screen and multiple icons at the bottom. It is one of these icons that we will access to open up the applications folder.

    Find the Twitter application, and tap on it once to open the application.
    The Twitter application has a blue background with a white bird on it, with the word "Twitter" underneath it. Your Twitter application may be in a different position in this folder, therefore you will need to find it.

  8. 8
    Now tap on "Sync Interval" but also says "1 hour" underneath to indicate that in this example that is the time selected.
    What the sync interval means is how often our HTC One M8 will sync with our Twitter account. What it means by "Sync" is to connect and check Twitter. In this example, the phone will check every 1 hour for new messages, new tweets or anybody who's mentioning our name. If we use Twitter a lot and we want to know immediately when we have a new message or a new retweet etc., we may want to decrease the interval time.

  9. 9
    Tap on the interval we'd like to have.
    In this example, we'll tap on "5 minutes". We can decrease it to as little as "5 minutes". This means that our phone is going to sync with our account every 5 minutes to see if we have new information. If we don't use Twitter so much and we don't need to know immediately if we have new messages, we might want to make this period longer, for example, "4 hours". We can now see that the button in the settings menu now reads "5 minutes" to indicate the interval we have now selected.

  10. 10
    Tap "Sync Interval" to change the interval setting again.
    As we can see, the blue circle on the left of the options has moved. It was at "1 hour" before, but has moved to "5 minutes" since we changed it. Edit again by tapping on any option we want.
