Twitter Circle, the feature that lets you limit your tweets to a smaller audience, is now available to everyone. The company first started testing this new feature among “selective people” in May without a wider rollout.
Is Twitter circle available for everyone?
The answer to this query is yes. Twitter is now available to the public and everyone can use this feature.
How to use Twitter Circle:
This is way similar to Instagram’s new “close friends” feature, this feature allows you to share your posts or pictures among a smaller and more selective group of people. You can add up to 150 people of your choice to your circle. It is not necessary for them to follow you. This will be your Twitter circle of friends. When you have to share your thoughts or send a tweet that you might not want everyone to see. You still have a choice; you can choose to share it with your circle.
When you open the tweet composer, you’ll see an option to share with your circle. Then you have to select the drop-down menu which is situated at the top of the composer, then tap Circle. Click the Edit button that appears next to the option to choose who you want in your circle. Users will not receive notifications when you add or remove them from your circle. But those in your circle will see a highlighted badge that says “Only people in @[username]’s Twitter can see this tweet” under posts sent to your circle.
Twitter Circle Feature:
This feature could help users gain a little more control over their privacy without making their accounts completely private. However, content you shared among your circle will still be subjected to twitter’s community guidelines. Also, this feature does not stop other Twitter users from taking screenshots of what you shared. This is all we have for current Twitter news.
