Twitter Circle: A New Feature To Tweet To A Selected Group Of Followers

Wakas Javed

Twitter circle is a new feature that enables users to select followers who can view and interact with their content on a tweet-by-tweet base. This feature will allow users to have more intimate conversations to build close relationships with specific followers.

Twitter is rolling out a feature similar to Instagram, which allows users to make selected tweets visible to a small group of people.

After a successful test in May, Twitter Circle is now available to everyone across the globe on the desktop web and mobile app both for iOS and android.

During the test period, Twitter Circles made users comfortable enough to tweet more often, with increased engagement in circle tweets.

Twitter Circle eliminates the need to switch between multiple accounts like personal and professional accounts, as you can customize the audience for each tweet you send.

In a Twitter circle, you can add up to 150 people that you can replace with others Twitter users anytime you want. Unlike circles on Google+ which are deprecated, Twitter only allows you to have one circle at a time.

Tweets sent to your circle will appear with a green badge below them.

They are only visible to people in your circles and cannot be retweeted or shared.

Also, all replies to these tweets are private, even if your Twitter account is public.
