Twitter has started testing “Circles”. Consider Twitter Circle to be the Instagram version of the “Close Friends” list. Only those you’ve added to your Circle will be able to view and respond to your Tweets when you tweet to them.
A tweet announcing this new feature said; “Some Tweets are for everyone & others are just for people you’ve picked”.
“We’re now testing Twitter Circle, which lets you add up to 150 people who can see your Tweets when you want to share with a smaller crowd”.
It is not clear yet when this feature would be rolled out to everyone on Twitter, but we hope it wouldn’t be long. For now, it is only available to some people only.
“Some of you can create your own Twitter Circle beginning today!” the Tweet continued…
Twitter has created a new Help Center page that discusses Twitter Circle in detail. It’s not the same as joining Twitter Communities or having a password-protected account (where only those allowed can see your Tweets).
You can only have one Circle for now, and each Circle can only have 150 members in it. The full list of users in your Circle is visible only to you, and Tweets published to a Circle cannot be retweeted. Although the Circle limits who can see specific Tweets, it does not prevent anyone from re-sharing media or screenshots of your post.
Finally, once you’ve been added to a Circle, you can’t get out of it. Twitter suggests that users mute any chats they don’t want to be a part of.
Twitter is only testing this feature with a small number of users around the world. You should see the option to make a Circle appear up when you compose a Tweet on Android, iOS, or Twitter.com if you’re part of the test group. Anyone, including people you don’t follow, can be a member of a Circle. When you post a Tweet to your Circle, only members in your Circle may see it, react to it, and read it.
