How to set up iOS 5 Twitter integration for iPhone,

If you're new to iPhone or iPad and have just gotten started with iOS 5, you might be wondering how to set up the new Twitter integration feature. It gives you the ability to tweet directly from Photos, YouTube, Safari, Maps, and any other third party applications that request access to your twitter settings. It's also easy to set up. Here's how.

  1. Go to Settings

2. Enter the Twitter Settings

3. Enter your @username and password

4. Select which apps you wish to have access to the twitter settings.

5. Now, you'll be able to share from Photos, YouTube, Safari, Maps and other third party apps that support the twitter integration.

Bonus: When you’re in Twitter settings, you can install the official twitter app, directly from settings.

Optional: You can merge your twitter friends with your contacts. Twitter uses phone numbers and email addresses to match twitter names with your friends, and adds a link to their profile to their contact.

You've now got Twitter set up on your iPhone, allowing you to tweet straight from some of Apple's native apps, as well as some third party apps. You can also login to select Twitter apps, without having to re-enter your login.

For some reason, I don't get the option for iQuick Tweet. Never mind, I see it's a separate app.

Jose Solano says:

How do I view tweets in the notification center? I thought that was part of the integration but I don't see them. I do have twitter notifications set to yes in notification center.

Lane says:

Scxpress, I'd love to know the answer to this as well. Zero notifications/push of tweets despite having the settings on. Is this working for anyone out there?

nuflat says:

I have the same issue.

Steve Heigh says:

It was my understanding that only tweets directed at you would show up in the notification center - is this your issue or you want to have all tweets from you twitter account show up?

scxpress says:

I was looking for all tweets. What you are saying makes sense, I will try it. Thanks.

myPhone says:

I don't use the official Twitter app. Instead I use Echofon. After I upgraded to iOS 5, I went to Settings > Twitter, and my credentials were already in there. I wonder if iOS read this from my Echofon data? Anyone else come across this?

Kvidic says:

Mmm, i think that something like that is going on. I can't disconnect my twitter account from native twitter app for iPad after went on iOS 5. Me don't like it...

Rex_suggs says:

they need to make it where you can tweet from anywhere. like from the home screen when you tweet from safari and the other apps you need to have the option to remove the pic from your tweets.

Anybody know how to NOT let this option be available for your contacts to view your username? "Optional: You can merge your twitter friends with your contacts. Twitter uses phone numbers and email addresses to match twitter names with your friends, and adds a link to their profile to their contact."

How do I attach full resolution photos to my tweets?
When I've tried to previously attach photos, they have all been low resolution ones.
Thanks,

I do accept as true with all of the ideas you have introduced to your post. They're really convincing and can certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts are too brief for beginners. May just you please lengthen them a little from subsequent time? Thank you for the post.

I have been surfing on-line greater than 3 hours today, but I never discovered any fascinating article like yours. It's beautiful price enough for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made excellent content as you did, the web will likely be a lot more useful than ever before.
