With the introduction of its Circle feature, Twitter has made it possible to share your tweets with a select few of your contacts, instead of being forced to post your tweet for the world to see.
This feature is a way to send your tweets to select people on Twitter and share your thoughts with a smaller crowd. This Twitter feature works somewhat similarly to WhatsApp, Facebook, and Instagram groups, as you can choose who’s going to be in your Twitter Circle, and only the individuals you’ve added can reply to and interact with the tweets you share in the circle.
This feature is now available to everyone on iOS, Android, and Twitter.com globally. You can have only one of this privacy feature with up to 150 people. Anyone on Twitter can be added to your circle, even if they don’t follow you.
Once added to the circle, they’ll be able to see tweets and replies shared. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you create your Circle and share your tweets with your selected people.
