How to setup multiple twitter accounts with one email address

  1. 1. How to Setup Multiple Twitter Accounts with One Email Address Have you ever tried to signup for a second Twitter account using an email address that has already been used? You can’t, Twitter only allows you to have one account per unique email address. There is a way around this and I will show you how. The only thing you need is a Gmail address. Gmail has a nice feature where you can create aliases. http://thesocialmediaguide.com.au/ 1

  3. 3. An alias is where you add “+something” after your Gmail username and before the “@gmail.com” Eg, My Gmail address is – matthewtommasi[at]gmail.com and for this guide I am going to create the following alias,  matthewtommasi+twitter1@gmail.com With aliases,  You can have as many aliases as you want per Gmail username  Aliases can be as short as one character long after the + symbol, eg testuser+1@gmail.com Before we move onto Twitter, we need to do two things with your Gmail account, 1. Create a label 2. Create a filter Create a Label Login to your Gmail account and next to the search field in Gmail click on the create a filter link, In the To field, enter your Gmail username + alias, then click <Next Step>, http://thesocialmediaguide.com.au/ 3
  4. 4. Check the option Apply the label, then select New label, Enter a new label name, then click <OK>, Create a Filter Click on <Create Filter>, http://thesocialmediaguide.com.au/ 4
  5. 5. Your filter has now been created and any incoming mail to that address will also have that label applied to it, Done! Your Gmail alias has now been setup. Now send a test email (from yourself) to your newly created alias to see if it works, Successfully received and the new label is also visible, http://thesocialmediaguide.com.au/ 5
