Twitter new feature “Twitter Circle” lets users tweet pre-selected followers
Twitter announced a new feature which lets users tweet exclusively to pre-selected followers. Dubbed “Twitter Circle,” the limited test is being run globally and appears designed for instances where users explicitly don’t want their content to go viral.
“Some Tweets are for everyone & others are just for people you’ve picked,” explained Twitter. “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.”
According to a company spokesperson, as of now Twitter Circle is only available for a “small group of people.”
Notably, Twitter has put in place restrictions on what can be done with tweets once they’ve been launched into the Circle.
