Twitter launches its version of 'close friends' for all users

Twitter users will be able to have greater control of their publications with the new tool of the social network: Twitter Circle . A nod to what Close friends is on Instagram or the control you can have in other apps, like Facebook, through previous privacy settings.

“People now have the flexibility to choose who can see and interact with their content on a tweet-by-tweet basis. This makes it easier to have closer conversations and forge closer connections with the followers of your choice.

The tool began testing in May this year, but now it gives access to all users in the world.

How it works and how to use Twitter Circle

Before you post on Twitter, users will see an option to share with the ‘Twitter Circle’ of their choice or with an entire list of followers. Circles can include up to 150 people, and you can adjust who’s in and who’s out at any time.

Tweets sent to your circle will appear with a green badge below them and will only be visible to the people you’ve selected. It is important to note that they cannot be retweeted or shared. Also, all replies to tweets are private, even if the poster’s account is open to everyone.

Why did this tool come about?

According to the social network, since its testing phase began, people have been sharing how this feature has helped them personalize their Twitter experience, including:

Feel more comfortable tweeting and expressing themselves

Eliminating the need for alternate or secondary accounts

Share content with a close and ever-evolving group of friends

Avoid switching between public and private account settings
