How can I connect with people?
To add contacts, you need to share your twinme invitation “twincode” with your contacts’ twinme application and have them accept it (or to accept theirs).
- To invite a contact next to you, you should both (1) open your twinme application, (2) select “Add a new contact”, and (3) “In-person”. You can then scan the QR-code displayed on your contact’s device with your device camera, and accept his/her invitation. Or, alternatively, let your contact scan yours and accept it. A new entry appears in your contact list with the name and image of the default profile your contact used to invite you. However, you and your contact are now paired in a unique way and you can change your image and name for that contact only.
- In order to invite contacts remotely, you need to send them your twinme invitation url (the same that is represented by the QR-code used to invite “In-person”) by what is called “Social” media, e.g., email, SMS, Facebook, twitter or any other application available on your device that can send a text message to the people you want to invite. The text message contains the url with your invitation “twincode”. When receiving your message on their own social media application, people need to open the included url with their twinme application and accept your invitation.
- Another way, to invite people you may not know yet, is to publish the url with your invitation “twincode” on a website, a business card, an email signature, etc. either literally or with its QR-code. Your “audience” will then be able to open the url, or scan the QR-code with their twinme application to become one of your contacts.
- If, at any time, you remove a profile used to invite some people, associated invitations become immediately invalid, and no one can get in touch with you with these invitations anymore.
