Add a Twitter Account to HTC One M8
Edited by Thor, JellyBean, Eng
Hello, and welcome to VisiHow. In this video, we are going to show you how to add a Twitter account to an HTC One M8.
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'll see the Lock screen.
To unlock the phone, swipe the screen upwards.
Once the phone has been unlocked, we'll see the Home screen. There will be some icons at the bottom.
What we now need to do is to find the Settings menu. To do that, we need to swipe the Notification panel down. Start right at the top of the screen and swipe downwards.
Now, we can see that the Notification panel has appeared.
We are looking for the icon in the top right-hand corner of the screen. We can see that there is a white cog icon. This is our Settings icon.
Press down on it, and it will open up our "Settings" menu. Now, we can see that it says the word "Settings" in the top left-hand corner of the screen.
Let's scroll down until we get to the "PERSONAL" section. We can see that it says the word "PERSONAL" in the gray bar.
In this section, we're looking for the option that says, "Accounts & sync". Next to these words there is an icon of a gray circle, surrounded by two gray arrows making another circle.
Press down on this option, and it will open up our "Accounts & sync" menu.
What we need to do now is to demonstrate how to add a Twitter account. To do that, we need to press on the icon at the top of the screen in the black bar. It's a white "+" sign.
Press down on it, and this will allow us to add accounts. We have a list of all the accounts that we can add to our HTC One M8. This is not an extensive or exhaustive list. There are others that we can add. Just because we can't see them on this list, doesn't mean we can't add them.
Right at the bottom, we can see it says the word "Twitter". Next to the word "Twitter", there is the "Twitter" icon.
Press down on this option, and it will open up the next section. It's going to ask us to enter our "Phone, Email or Username" and it's going to ask us to enter our Twitter "Password".
We're going to do that now. We are going to delete the information that appears in this example because we're going to use a different account.
We'll add our username, email, or phone number, then we'll add our password.
Once we've inputted our password and username or email address, then press down on the big blue bar that says "Login".
It's going to sync our "Twitter" account with our HTC One M8. As we can see it says, "Authorize Twitter for HTC Sense to use your account?" and "This enables Twitter for HTC Sense to work with your Twitter account, with your permission." We can "ALLOW" this, but we don't have to allow it. We can still use our "Twitter" account without syncing it to the HTC One M8 and using HTC Sense. However, syncing it will allow us to have a lot more features. It will allow us to get the most out of both of these individual elements, both our phone and our "Twitter" account.
Press down then on either of these options. We're going to choose "ALLOW". As we can see, it's going to say it is "AUTHENTICATING" it.
It's authenticated. As we can see, we have our own special Twitter account that we have successfully added to our phone.
This concludes our tutorial on how to add a Twitter account to an HTC One M8. If you have any questions or comments about this video or about anything you've seen in this video, then please leave them in the comment section below. We shall answer them for you.
