- Twitter Circle Reportedly Expands to More Users.
- The easiest way to check if you are part of the test is to start composing a tweet.
- You can add up to 150 people in a Circle and Twitter will not notify users.
Twitter started testing Circle earlier this month with a limited group, and now it looks like it’s starting to roll out to more users. The feature works a lot like Instagram’s Close Friends, as it allows users to send out tweets to a specific group of people rather than all of Twitter. It allows you to create a group of up to 150 people that you can share your tweets with. Both followers and non-followers can be part of a Circle. While the feature has not rolled out to everyone just yet, Twitter seems to be expanding the test to more people on iOS and Android.
To check if you have access to Twitter Circle, update your Twitter app or head to Twitter in a web browser. When you start composing a tweet, you’ll see a dropdown menu at the top that reads Everyone. From here, you can choose Twitter Circle to limit your tweet to a select audience, or you can hit Edit to add or remove people from your Circle. Twitter won’t notify users if you add or remove them.
Here’s how you can use Twitter Circle on both android and iOS.
- Open the Twitter app and from the main menu, select Tweet to open the Tweet composer.
- Select Everyone to display the Choose audience menu within the Tweet composer.
- Select Edit next to the Twitter Circle option.
- Under Edit your Twitter Circle, use search to find and choose people you want in your Circle or select someone from the recommended list.
- Select Add/Remove next to their name.
- Select Done and continue drafting your Tweet.
- Now, when you select Tweet, only your Twitter Circle can view and reply to the Tweet you created.
You can add up to 150 people to a Circle and Twitter will not notify users, when adding or removing them from the Circle. You can also add people who do not follow you to a Circle.
