Apple makes Twitter its default social network for mobile

Published on .

San Francisco—Among the announcements at its Worldwide Developer Conference Monday, Apple Inc. said that Twitter would be deeply integrated into the next iteration of its mobile operating system. Twitter will be embedded in Apple's new iOS 5 operating system for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch media player. Once activated, the feature will allow users to automatically access their Twitter accounts without logging in and send tweets from their devices' camera app, YouTube app, photo album, Safari browser and other Apple or third-party applications that support the single sign-on capability. The iOS 5 beta was released to developers, with the finished version expected to be available to consumers in the fall.
