There are a lot of options out there for you to get your social media fix, but keeping track of them all can be a little difficult at times. Hidden away in the Safari browser is a fantastic little feature that can make this situation easier, and all it takes is a little digging to find it. By adding internet accounts to the Safari browser, not only can you integrate your Twitter feed into it, but also the likes of Facebook and LinkedIn accounts. It’s a great way of keeping your accounts all in one place. In this tutorial we’ll guide you through the process of adding a Twitter feed to Safari, while also helping you manage multiple accounts and how to go about opening and sharing links that are sent to you.
