Kids sharing tech

What are everyone's thoughts on children - or siblings - sharing tech?

I have two (very mature) 10 year old nieces and wondered whether getting them a tablet for them both to share this Christmas is a good idea. My brother (their dad) and I thought it was until I told my colleague who completely rubbished the idea. She didn't really get the fact that we thought it would encourage healthy amounts of screen time (as they would be sharing) and could talk to one another if they came across something that upset them online.

Are there tablets that allow you to create two different profiles? If so, I think this would be a definite pro. I'd really appreciate some advice so I can buy it on time! Thanks. Jackie.
