Twitter on Tuesday rolled out a new feature Twitter Circle globally, allowing users to tweet to a smaller crowd.
Twitter Circle gives people the flexibility to choose who can see and engage with their content on a Tweet-by-Tweet basis.
“This makes it easier to have more intimate conversations and build closer connections with select followers.,” Twitter said in blog post on its website.
“Giving people the option to share thoughts with a select group of followers helps make Tweeting more accessible.”
Twitter said it began testing the new feature in May and received “overwhelmingly positive” responses.
The social media giant said the new feature is now “available to everyone on iOS, Android, and Twitter.com globally.”
How Twitter Circle works
Before you post on Twitter, you’ll now see an option to share your Tweet with either your circle or your full followers list.
Circles can contain up to 150 people, and you can adjust who’s in and who’s out at any time. Don’t worry, no one will be notified of any changes you make to your circle.
Tweets sent to your circle will appear with a green badge underneath them. They can only be seen by those you’ve selected to be in your circle and cannot be Retweeted or shared. Additionally, all replies to these Tweets are private, even if your Twitter account is public.
