Twitter enables account sharing in its mobile app, powered by TweetDeck Teams
From TechCrunch - September 8, 2017

TweetDeck Teamsa feature that lets users share access to Twitter accounts without having to share a passwordwill now work in the Twitter app for iOS and Android. This change will make it easier for those who run social media accounts for businesses and brands to post updates, check replies, send direct messages and more, without having to run a separate app.

If anything, however, the move could hint that Twitter is thinking of transitioning TweetDecks account management features to its main app. After all, many of TweetDecks more advanced features, like muting, search and list management, already exist on Twitter itself. It only makes sense that shared accounts would make their way over, too.

TweetDeck hasnt had a lot of attention since Twitter bought the app for $40 million back in 2011. Instead, following a small update in 2012, its features have slowly disappeared or failed to keep up with those on Twitters official clients. Twitter also shut down TweetDecks mobile appsa few years ago, thendiscontinued its Windows clientlast year. (Windows users were directed to use TweetDeck via the web.)

Meanwhile, TweetDecks Mac app hasnt been updated since mid-2015 on the Mac App Store.

Now, one of TweetDecks bigger selling points is making its way over to Twitter, with this support for Teams.
