The box to do this is checked by default.
Choose any friends you’d like to add: Even if you did not check the box to let Twitter upload your contact information, it will attempt to match you with people you might know after you sign in. You can review the list and uncheck anyone you don’t want to follow, or tap the “Skip” button by scrolling to the bottom of the list.
Choose any accounts you want to follow: Once you are done choosing friends to add, you will be asked if you’d like to follow any of Twitter’s recommended users. Click the “+” button next to people you want to follow and click “Next” when you’re done.
Edit your profile: Once you finish selecting friends and people to follow, you will be asked to edit your profile. This option will pop up only the first time that you log into the mobile app. Review your profile information and tap the “Finish” button once you are done.
- Since long bios are tedious to read on mobile devices, you can consider whittling your information if it is on the wordy side.
- You can change the profile picture to an existing photo on your mobile device or you can use your device’s camera to take a new picture.
