If you want to install and use the Twitter app on your PC or Mac, you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We have worked diligently to help you understand how to use this app for your computer in 4 simple steps below:

Step 1: Download an Android emulator for PC and Mac

Ok. First things first. If you want to use the application on your computer, first visit the Mac store or Windows AppStore and search for either the Bluestacks app or the Nox App . Most of the tutorials on the web recommends the Bluestacks app and I might be tempted to recommend it too, because you are more likely to easily find solutions online if you have trouble using the Bluestacks application on your computer. You can download the Bluestacks Pc or Mac software here

Step 2: Install the emulator on your PC or Mac

Now that you have downloaded the emulator of your choice, go to the Downloads folder on your computer to locate the emulator or Bluestacks application.
Once you have found it, click it to install the application or exe on your PC or Mac computer.
Now click Next to accept the license agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application properly.
If you do the above correctly, the Emulator app will be successfully installed.

Step 3: for PC - Windows 7/8 / 8.1 / 10

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and look for its search bar. Once you found it, type Twitter in the search bar and press Search. Click on Twitter application icon. A window of Twitter on the Play Store or the app store will open and it will display the Store in your emulator application. Now, press the Install button and like on an iPhone or Android device, your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.
You will see an icon called "All Apps".
Click on it and it will take you to a page containing all your installed applications.
You should see the icon. Click on it and start using the application.

Step 4: for Mac OS

Hi. Mac user!
The steps to use this app for Mac are exactly like the ones for Windows OS above. All you need to do is install the Nox Application Emulator or Bluestack on your Macintosh. The links are provided in step one

Download on Andriod, Iphone
Free On iTunes
Download Android

Thank you for reading this tutorial. Have a nice day!

  • Locked out of account

    By CatLoverKatie
    Not usually one to make bad reviews but this app has caused a large amount of unnecessary stress in my life. After being on Twitter for nearly 8 years, I was locked out of my account due to them believing I did not make the age requirement of 13 (might I add, I am older than 13, and was older than 13 when my twitter account was made). After submitting the request for appeal several times within the course of several days,(which requires sending in a copy of your drivers license- hope you don’t like giving out every once of personal information you have) I have not had any contact from twitter at all. I created a new account but it does not have the same feed that my other account had built up over time. I throughly enjoyed twitter before, but now being 1600 followers short and losing follows from a few famous accounts, I do not feel the same pleasure as I did with my first (now locked) twitter. I will probably soon be deleting this app until they decide to unlock my account (which who knows when that will be) because at this point I’m just angry with the creators. I wish there was a way to contact Twitter Support and speak with an agent, rather than sitting, hoping, waiting for an automated response. It would make the app more enjoyable, and it would make the people using the app feel more comfortable and safe with the information they are providing.
  • BIG RANT! Locking people out of their accounts randomly

    By V.bunny
    I’m so frustrated I loved twitter but now it’s going out of hand with locking accounts. I have had my account for 8 years never had an issue with resetting a password til now. I was on twitter put my phone down after an hour I got lock out randomly and they told me to reset my password over the 8 years I forgot the original email and phone number I used for the account and back then it wouldn’t even be shown in the settings. Now that I am locked out they told me to reset my password with the email or phone with the account which I forgot they never told me to update my information before they just decided to lock me out. I decided to start a fresh account but wanted my old account deactivated since I couldn’t get into it I don’t want it to just stay online. I gave them all my personal information to deactivate my old account and emailed me saying they couldn’t get any proof that I made my account it was so obvious that I did I’m so annoyed. Now when I try to login to the new account it gets confused with the old account so basically I AM LOCKED OUT OF TWO ACCOUNTS INCLUDING THE ONE I JUST MADE 😠 I can’t get help because their emails are not helpful whatsoever I rather talk to someone who can understand what the problem is. I’m so disappointed with their customer service.
  • Let’s begin

    Twitter is a great platform for communication, and i’ve met many of my friends through twitter. HOWEVER, it is completely inexcusable the amount of harassment that goes unpunished on this website. Literal nazis are allowed to publicize their hate speech, and people are allowed an unmonitored place to preach their homophobic/transphobic/racist/etc thoughts with little to no backlash. On the other hand, when there are people who stand up to such prejudices, they get SUSPENDED for DEFENDING themselves. The amount of people I have had to seek out their second accounts because they got suspended for standing up for themselves is 100% unacceptable. There are many positives to this app; it’s a platform for debate and discussion, it’s a great way to connect with people from all over the planet, and it’s a wonderful machine for artists to spread their work and gain recognition. Like all social media, it has its flaws. If the twitter staff truly wants to make it a good place for everyone to share their ideas, and i mean EVERYONE, then they need to take action in making sure that everyone has a say, instead of silencing those who stand up for themselves and allowing their oppressors to spread their hate.
  • Urgent! Money scamming going on in twitter.

    By lovingorca
    I believe there is scamming going on. People are pretending to be celebrities and asking people to send them large amounts of money claiming it's for concert tickets. Twitter needs to make it so that we can copy our entire message so that we can report this suspicious activity. Facebook needs to do the same thing. Make it so we can copy the entire message that needs to be reported. Please do something about the scamming. The scammers are pretending to be celebrities. It's not fare to our real Celebrities. Please investigate and get to the bottom of of it. Thx. I need to be able to copy the entire content of the messages that I have. Question: Now I'm left with who is really who on twitter. Aka What caused the alarms to start going off was when they started asking for money. A real celebrity would not do that. Plus they wouldn't put pressure on someone and then block a fan because they didn't get what they were after. Please give us the ability to copy our messages in their entirety. Why am I getting so many true twit requests to verify that I’m really me? It’s very confusing when I’ve already done it. I’ve registered, what more is there? I’m not going to creat a payed account.

  • Twitter

    By Thelios2953
    Gotta say I have looked both IOS and Android apps over and over. This app has to be the best app altogether than any. Believe me I have tried to find something better.....
  • I love twitter but.....

    By cosypml
    twitter is the main social media I use but I wish, personally, that it would go back to the square layout/messages because the ones we have now are ugly. I also wish it was just the feather icon on the top instead of in the circle for composing tweets. Those are just my preferences, of course. But back to the actual app/platform itself, any time I wish to make a new account, I end up having to reuse an old account because as soon as the new account’s made, it gets locked and I don’t have a number to fix this so I have to use the system of going through their support email, which is nobody’s favourite, let’s be honest, and that takes days to even get a reply, and sometimes nothing gets solved. My accounts get suspended automatically, sometimes before I even finish setting up my profile, because I automatically don’t have followers? That’s stupid and infuriating, and one of the things I hate about this platform the most. TLDR: the app works like intended, it’s fine. I just have preferences I wish I could switch back to and complaints about twitter’s automatic system to lock accounts that don’t immediately have followers five seconds after they’re created. Five stars.
  • Background color change

    By Anya51
    I would have given a 5 * but since the background is black I really hate it! Ugh! Give us a choice please! It’s easier for me to read it with a black background!
  • Garbage

    By mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmerdock
    Garbage platform. Garbage app. Many garbage users
  • Account suspended

    By nickyxplicit
    I guess I can’t have a Twitter because I am a free “speecher” and a free thinker! Every time I try to build a massive audience of followers they just end up removing it because I said something that threw a wrench at the cog society I’m so sorry I didn’t follow Twitter is ultra conservative & radical agenda. I guess I’m just gonna delete the app and go find another service that allows my progressive values it’s time for us all to leave Twitter behind once and for all.

  • 😤😤👍🏽👍🏽

    By U don't know me right here
    I love this app. I didn’t understand it at first but I got the hang of it then I automatically LOVED it. But for some reason my timeline is really try and I’ll be scrolling and it just stops. Other than that I love it
  • Good idea but bad marketing

    By Dan7boy
    I love the idea of this social network platform, but for claiming to be a platform for all voices, the site is VERY politically one-sided. I feel like that benefits nobody and neutrality is not being achieved.
