Twitter Circle tests the tweets you’d rather keep to “pick people”.

As we’ve seen, Twitter’s upcoming acquisition hasn’t frozen all product testing Hints to upcoming edit tweets expire function. And now, the company announced a limited exam for the twitter circle. It’s a function similar to Close friends feature of Instagram or, if you’ve been at it for a while, GooglePlus.

Twitter Circle allows users to choose up to 150 people to join their circle, including both followers and non-followers. Then, when they feel like Tweeting without sharing with the crowd, they simply pull up the “Choose Audience” menu while composing a Tweet and select “Twitter Circle” instead of “Everyone” (as shown below ). According to Twitter, this is different than his communitieswho also hide tweets to prevent “collapse context‘ because these are tied to specific discussions, while Circle are just standard tweets that aren’t visible to everyone.

It’s a way to have similar privacy to a banned account, only showing to people who follow it, without being limited to a banned account. People who are currently members of your circle can see the tweets you post there, but they can’t use the built-in retweet icon to automatically share them. Of course, that doesn’t stop screenshots or downloads of content in the tweet, but again, it’s the same as having a suspended account, except it varies based on the tweets you select.

As Twitter’s guidelines for testing make clear, just because the public can’t see your tweets doesn’t mean there aren’t rules. Elon doesn’t own the site yet – You can still be banned for abusive behavior or other activity that breaks the rules. The feature has been in the works for at least last year, show up with “Trusted Friends” and “Facet” branding for settings, and earlier this year named “herd.”

Right now, the select few who have access to the Twitter circle can only create a single circle, and only the person who creates the circle can see the list of people in it. The function is available to them via iOS, Android and the web. If you’re in a circle, you can’t remove yourself from it, but you can still mute a discussion if it’s taking up too much time.
