Do you want to sign up for a Twitter account? Unlike other services that offer to allow you to sign up for their services using Facebook or Google, Twitter does not have that, but that could change soon because according to researcher Jane Manchun Wong, the company could actually be working to implement “Sign In With Apple”.
For those who are unfamiliar, Sign In With Apple is a feature that the company debuted back in iOS 13 in 2019. It was basically an alternative to sign-in options like Google or Facebook, with the exception being that it doesn’t actually use your email address, but one generated by Apple for added privacy purposes.
Twitter is working on Apple Sign-In integration, as indicated in:

In the screenshots shared by Wong, it appears that not only is Twitter considering allowing users to sign in with Apple, but Google as well. In fact, it was just last month that there were signs that signing in with Google was a possibility, and these screenshots seem to confirm that it could be something Twitter is working on.
There is currently no word on when these changes are expected to be implemented, but if you’re a huge privacy advocate, then maybe this is something to look forward to in the future once these new features are released.
