Twitter users can now use Twitter Circle to tweet to a smaller audience. Here are the steps to make it.
Twitter recently introduced Twitter Circle. It allows users to tweet to a smaller audience. Twitter Circle gives people the flexibility to choose who can see and interact with their content per tweet. This makes it easier to have more intimate conversations and build closer connections with select followers. The feature is available worldwide to everyone on iOS, Android, and Twitter.com. “Twitter Circle is a way to send tweets to selected people and share your thoughts with a smaller audience. You choose who is in your Twitter Circle, and only the people you’ve added can comment and comment on the Tweets that you share in the Twitter circle,” the social networking platform said.
According to the information provided by Twitter, one person can only have one Twitter circle and contain up to 150 people. Before posting to Twitter, you’ll see an option to share your Tweet with your circle or with your entire follower list. Tweets sent to your circle appear with a green badge underneath. They can only be seen by those you have selected to be part of your circle and cannot be retweeted or shared. In addition, all replies to these Tweets are private, even if your Twitter account is public. This is how Twitter Circle works:
Twitter Circle: Create and Manage
You can manage your Twitter Circle from your Tweet composer or the main menu. It may be noted that when you need to add or remove someone, they will not be notified. You can get started setting, adding, and removing people from your Twitter Circle with the edit button that appears when you choose Twitter Circle as the audience of a Tweet you’re composing.
How to manage your Twitter Circle from the main menu
Tap Twitter circle.
Under Edit your Twitter circle, use the search function to find and choose people you want in your circle, or select someone from the recommended list. Tap Add/Remove next to their name.
Select Tweet from the main menu to open the Tweet composer.
Select Everyone to display the Choose audience menu in the Tweet composer.
Select Edit next to the Twitter Circle option.
Under “Edit your Twitter circle”, use the search function to find and choose people you want in your circle, or select someone from the “Recommended” list. Select Add/Remove next to their name.
Click the X to continue composing your Tweet. Now if you select Tweet, only your Twitter Circle can view and reply to the tweet you created.
How to Share a Tweet to Your Twitter Circle
You share Twitter Circle Tweets the same way you send public Tweets. After opening the Tweet composer, select Everyone to display the Choose Audience menu. Select Twitter Circle as audience, then compose and share your tweet.
