Twitter's 'close friends’ feature could share tweets to up to 150 select clients

  • 25-January-2022

Twitter seems, by all accounts, to be working on a feature that allows you to share tweets to a particular group of people (through Input). In the event that this sounds recognizable, this is on the grounds that Instagram's Close Friends feature allows you to do precisely the same thing - however for Twitter's situation, you'll be restricting your tweets to your "Flock."

Twitter previously provided us with a brief look at the feature last July, which it called "Trusted Friends" at that point. From that point forward, mobile developer Alessandro Paluzzi has been monitoring Twitter's progress, and it's truly beginning to take shape.

Paluzzi's latest discoveries give us some understanding into how the feature may work - Twitter is by all accounts working on a page that shows more data on Flock, which clarifies you can add up to 150 members. Just these clients can view or reply to tweets sent out to your Flock. What's more in the event that you conclude you don't need somebody in your Flock any longer, Twitter notes you can eliminate individuals from your list whenever, and they will not get a notification.

Assuming you're in somebody's Flock and they send out a tweet, Paluzzi saw a label that might show up beneath that tweet, reading: “You can see this Tweet because the author has added you to their Flock.” This should make it simple to recognize close friends versus every other person you follow on Twitter. To send a tweet to your Flock, it seems as though Twitter will show an audience option before you send it out, allowing you to pick either all of Twitter and your selected clients.

Twitter launched invite-only Communities back in September, a comparable feature that allows you to interface with clients with shared interests. Very much like you can restrict your tweets to your Flock, you can send out tweets to a particular Community rather than every one of your followers. It's as yet unclear when Twitter's "close friends"- like feature will arrive at all clients, at the same time, ideally, it won't flounder like Fleets.

“Twitter is always working on new ways to help people engage in healthy conversations, and we’re currently exploring ways to let people share more privately,” Twitter spokesperson Tatiana Britt told The Verge. “We don’t have any further news to share about the feature at this time, but we can confirm ‘Twitter Flock’ is just a placeholder name.”
