Welcome to the TweetDeck For Chrome Learning Guide! This series is dedicated to breaking down all of the functions of TweetDeck for Chrome. If you’re not using TweetDeck for Chrome, go back to the TweetDeck Learning Guide and pick your version!
This tutorial is all about logging in and its many options. There are three different ways to log into TweetDeck for Chrome!
Each option obviously functions differently, and I’m going to go through them from worst to best as far as my experience is concerned.
I’ll start with Import from TweetDeck desktop.
This is pretty simple. Hit the button, and it asks you to open the Desktop app to authorize the information sharing. Over in the Desktop version of TweetDeck, you get this pop-up.
Pretty simple, click okay to transfer your information.
There’s a catch: I haven’t managed to get this to work. I don’t know why it doesn’t work, but it just sits there and load continuously. It’s unfortunate, because this would make using both an absolute breeze!
The guest function is nice, if you don’t want to leverage the cloud server TweetDeck uses to remember all of your accounts! Once you click on “Get started without signing in” it brings up the main TweetDeck window except where you normally have your account menu, you get this.
It doesn’t save your accounts, and you can log in exactly like the full version.
The last option is logging in with your TweetDeck account. No need to worry if you don’t have one yet.
This is a fairly typical log-in screen. Use the email you signed up with, put in your password, hit the yellow button to sign in. If you don’t have a TweetDeck account yet, hit the Register button instead. It brings up the following screen.
Looks familiar, doesn’t it? Just enter a valid email address, and choose a password, then register. You’re in. This will log you in in Guest Mode, from which you’ll need to sign in to your new account.
Once you’re done, you’re on TweetDeck for Chrome!
