- Circles, a new feature coming to Twitter, was unveiled today by the platform’s developers.
- When tweeting, users may choose up to 150 recipients from a list of pre-selected options.
- Like Google+ circles, the new tool allows you to share private thoughts and postings with certain groups of individuals, making it easy to regulate your privacy and security.
- As of right now, just a small subset of Twitter users will be able to make use of the new Circles feature.
Earlier this month, Twitter unveiled a new tool that would allow users to exchange tweets privately with other Twitter users. It’s called “Circles,” and it’s a lot like Google+’s old function, which was named “Circles.”
In the midst of a potential new owner, Twitter has received a lot of attention recently. It seems that some people want things to change substantially, while others want to keep things the same. For now, Twitter is handing out features that may have been in the works for some time and have an uncanny resemblance to Google+.
Circles, a new feature coming to Twitter, was unveiled today by the platform’s developers. When tweeting, users may choose up to 150 recipients from a list of pre-selected options. Following the publication, only a small number of people will have access to what has been uploaded. Followers can then respond and comment, as usual, remaining enclosed in the bubble the poster has created.
Some of your tweets are open to everyone, while others are just for a select few. In order to test Twitter Circle, which allows you to share your tweets with a smaller audience, we’ve added a 150-person limit.
Even after you’ve sent a tweet, Twitter says you can still choose who may see it and comment on it inside your Twitter Circle. Small bubbles will appear above the draught after you’ve entered the post to let you know that what you’re typing is private. It looks like standard editing is possible from here on out.
Like Google+ circles, the new tool allows you to share private thoughts and postings with certain groups of individuals, making it easy to regulate your privacy and security. Users can simply establish and manage these groups to control every aspect of their interactions. Circles, a feature of the social networking platform that has since been removed, was thought to be a good way to keep people from seeing each other.
In addition, Twitter strives to strengthen the platform’s privacy settings. Twitter implemented a feature about a year ago that allowed users to control who could respond to and comment on their tweets. This offered an additional degree of security and control to the user’s experience. As of this writing, the functionality has been made available to all users.
As of right now, just a small subset of Twitter users will be able to make use of the new Circles feature. As of yet, there is no news on when the new function will be accessible to all users. For the time being, it doesn’t seem that Twitter Circles will be a part of Twitter Blue.
