Microblogging platform Twitter has launched a new feature called Twitter circles, which will enable users to share tweets with a specific, custom group of connections in the app. As noted by Twitter down below.
In this Guide, let’s look at What are Twitter circles and how this feature is different from communities, and lastly how to create a Twitter circle on your own. Without wasting time let’s get started.
What are Twitter Circles
Twitter Circles enables users to essentially create a private group where they can share tweets privately with the group. According to Twitter, users will be able to add up to 150 people to their Circle, with any tweets in the group then only visible to the people in that listing.
If you are a member of the group, you will see a green color indicator attached to each Circle tweet quoting “Only people in this circle can see this”.
This is an extension to the Twitter reply control option where you can restrict who can reply to the Tweet.
