4. If you don't yet have a new account, open Twitter in a new private or incognito browser window and follow the instructions to create a new account, then return to this browser and add it using the "Add an existing account" menu option. Using an incognito browser is the easiest way to create a new, additional account because your current account won't be automatically logged in.

After you've added or created the account, you can switch among them by clicking the profile icon and then choosing the account you want to use in the pop-up menu.
