5. System Accounts and Native Twitter AP... > Getting Started with System Accounts...

Getting Started with System Accounts and Twitter

The Accounts framework manages all of the accounts a user has added to their device. Each of these accounts is defined by an account-type property. Because the Accounts framework is new to iOS 5, at the launch of iOS version 5.0 there is only one type of system account available, Twitter. It’s expected, however, that because of how the Accounts framework is designed, Apple will eventually include additional account types in future iOS releases.

The goal of this chapter is two-fold. First, we’ll discuss how the Accounts framework is set up and how it can be used in combination with Twitter’s API. Next, we will interact with the Twitter API through the Twitter framework using credentials stored in the Accounts framework.
