The circle was first tested with a small group of users earlier this month, and it now appears that it is being rolled out to more individuals (via Android Police). In the same way that Instagram’s Close Friends feature allows users to send tweets to a limited group of people rather than the entire Twitter community, this feature allows users to send tweets to a small group of people.
To see if you have access to Twitter Circle, update your Twitter app or go to Twitter in a web browser. When you start typing a tweet, you’ll notice a dropdown menu at the top of the screen that says, Everyone. You can use Twitter Circles to limit the audience of your tweets, or you can change your Circle to add or remove people. If you add or remove users from Twitter, they will not be alerted.
Regardless of whether or not they follow you, you can add up to 150 people to your Circle. “This tweet can only be seen by persons in @[yourusernameTwitter ]’s Circle.”
Circle-only tweets will have a message at the bottom (and vice versa). Tweeting to your Circle is comparable to having a private account in that it only allows access to certain tweets rather than your entire profile.
Members of your Circle will not be able to retweet anything you post to it, but they will be able to screenshot and save it. It’s also important to note that Twitter’s community standards apply even if you’re tweeting to a smaller audience.
Despite the fact that more people appear to be using the tool, Twitter spokesperson Joseph Nunez told The Verge that it is still in beta. Nunez said, “We are still currently testing Twitter Circle with a group of people across iOS, Android, and Web globally,” adding, “The feature has not yet rolled out widely to everyone as we continue to gather feedback.”
It’s unclear how many people have Circle access at this moment. Despite the fact that more users (including myself) are now seeing the functionality display when they start composing a tweet, other users report they are still unable to use it.
