New Twitter Circle feature and how to use the feature

New Twitter Circle feature and how to use the feature

Twitter has seemingly started rolling out a new 'Circle' feature to more users. It allows you to send tweets to a specific set of people rather than the whole platform.

The company began testing it earlier this month with a limited number of people.

The exclusive list can have up to 150 people, and you can even edit the list whenever you want.

Have you ever checked how great it would be to tweet an inside joke to your mates without letting others see it? If you have, you may want to update the Twitter app.

Twitter Circle gives users the chance to make their tweets private. This feature may stop people from creating separate accounts to tweet privately.

Access Twitter Circle while composing a tweet

To know whether you are one of the chosen ones to be part of Twitter Circle's initial testing, update the app or head to the Twitter web.
Now, compose a tweet. In that window, click on the drop-down menu that reads 'Everybody.'
From here, you can choose Twitter Circle. However, if you want to make any alterations to the list, click on 'Edit.

Up to 150 people can be added to the list.

Twitter Circle is similar to Instagram's 'Close Friends' feature. It gives users the chance to limit the audience for a particular tweet.
Only 150 users can be added to the Circle list. People can be added or removed from the list anytime, but Twitter won't notify them of any such changes.
The list can have users that follow you or those that don't.

Limited reach

Tweets to a Circle cannot be retweeted.

Will users know that they are part of a Circle? Every Circle-only tweet will have a note appended stating, "Only people in @[yourusername]'s Twitter Circle can see this tweet."
People in this exclusive list cannot retweet. However, they can still screenshot or download it.
Twitter's community guidelines still apply to the exclusivity of Circle.

Twitter Circle feature is still in the testing.

It is unclear how many users have access to the Circle feature. However, it is still in the feature testing phase.

Joseph Nunez, a Twitter spokesperson, told The Verge.

"We are still currently testing Twitter Circle with a group of people across iOS, Android and Web globally,"

"The feature has not rolled out widely to everyone yet as we continue to gather feedback."
