The social media giant, Twitter is reportedly planning to allow users to log in through their Google account. The latest screenshot of the Twitter sign-in page, shared on Twitter by Jane Manchun Wong shows “Continue with Google” as an option while signing in. He also captioned the post with “Twitter is working on Google Sign-In integration.”
“Continue with Google” is likely to allow users to establish a new Twitter account using their Google account information, or log in to their Twitter account if it’s already linked to their Google account. This feature will even allow users to link their Google account to an existing Twitter account.
The integration of Google sign-in will make the process of signing in much easier and faster. However, there are several pros and cons of using a service like sign in with google.
As said earlier, the addition of sign-in with google will make signing in more convenient as it would eliminate the need to fill in basic information like the user’s name and email address. Users won’t have to even choose a password so it’s much easier to remember one password.
On the other hand, if there is any problem with a user’s Google account, they will have to face glitches in their Twitter account too. For instance, if someone hacked a user’s Google account, the hacker would have access to their Twitter account as well. Or if a user’s account is ever blocked for some reason, they won’t be able to have access to their own Twitter account.
The American-based micro-blogging site, Twitter is going to include some major changes this year other than the integration of google sign-in. Like, it has introduced ticketed spaces and super follows as a part of a strategy to remain competitive with other social media platforms by allowing content developers to earn money from their followings.
