Imagine you are at a networking event, you’ve had a fun convo about something you saw on Twitter the other day and towards the end of the chat, the other person asks you for your Twitter handle so the two of you can connect. Now, you could do it the old-fashion way and spell it out for them. Or, you could let them add you via your QR code and look like a boss! Don’t know how to do that? Lemme teach you!
There are two ways to find your QR code:
- Swipe right and look at the bottom right corner.
- Go to your profile, click on the three dots (Android) or the wheel (iOS) and click on QR code.
Now, this QR code is going to appear and you show it to the other person for scanning.
How can they scan it? They have to also go to their QR code the same way you did, but if they want to add you, they have to click on the camera icon on the bottom of the screen or just swipe left. Now they see a camera and with that, they have to aim it at your QR code.
Once they do that, your profile is going to pop up like this and they can simply click follow.
No more awkward typing of your handle, correcting any misspelling, browsing through all the other people Twitter suggests. This way you are going to impress the other person with your understanding of this cool Twiter feature and who knows, perhaps even teach them something new and you bet they are gonna remember you for that!
