Twitter has enabled a feature called Circle for all of its users, allowing you to tweet to up to 150 followers without feeling the shame of everyone discovering some facts that might be better kept to themselves.
We’ve all probably been in a situation where we want to share some content that only a select few will understand – it’s similar to a private joke that you and your partner could only laugh at. Twitter Circle is exactly that, which has been in testing since May.
While Elon Musk is relentlessly finding ways out of his deal to buy the company, that hasn’t stopped the Twitter team from looking for ways to make tweeting easier for its users.
When you have a big Tweet aimed at a smaller audience, send it to your Twitter circle –– now available to everyone. Select up to 150 people who can view and interact with the tweets you send in your circle. Start from the Tweet composer or sidebar menu. pic.twitter.com/c4YJTJpOGQAugust 30, 2022
Slowly rolling out to everyone on Android and iOS, creating a Twitter circle is simple. Regardless of whether someone follows you or not, you can add anyone to the circle when you are about to compose a tweet by pressing the ‘All‘ button.
The Circle option should appear if you haven’t already, and you can start adding your chosen users to read your guilty pleasures.
Already this is a feature that I know I will use. In the past I tweeted a lot sonic facts (opens in new tab), simpsons memes (opens in new tab) or Spice Girls (opens in new tab) facts to my followers, whether they want to read it on your Twitter timeline or not. But now I can treat a certain group with all this.
Did you know that the Spice Girls’ third album was supposed to be a live album of old and new songs from 1999 before Geri ‘Ginger Spice’ Halliwell left the group? Now yes – expect that and more in my Twitter circle soon.
