Twitter has recently introduced Twitter Circle. It allows users to tweet to a smaller crowd. With Twitter Circle, people get the flexibility to choose who can see and engage with their content on a tweet-by-tweet basis. This makes it easier to have more intimate conversations and build closer connections with select followers. The feature is available to everyone on iOS, Android, and globally. "Twitter Circle is a way to send tweets to select people, and share your thoughts with a smaller crowd. You choose who's in your Twitter Circle, and only the individuals you've added can reply to and interact with the Tweets you share in the circle," the social networking platform informed.

As per the information provided by Twitter, one person can have only one Twitter Circle and can include up to 150 people in it. Before you post on Twitter, you will see an option to share your Tweet with either your circle or your full followers list. Tweets sent to your circle will appear with a green badge underneath them. They can only be seen by those you have selected to be in your circle and cannot be Retweeted or shared. Additionally, all replies to these Tweets are private, even if your Twitter account is public. Here is how Twitter Circle works:

Twitter Circle: How to create and manage

You can manage your Twitter Circle from your Tweet composer or the main menu. It can be noted that whenever you need to add or remove someone, they will not be notified about the same. You can get started with setting up, adding, and removing people from your Twitter Circle with the edit button that appears when you choose Twitter Circle as the audience of a Tweet you are composing.

How to manage your Twitter Circle from the main menu

Step 1:

Tap Twitter Circle.

Step 2:

Under Edit your Twitter Circle, use search to find and choose people you want in your circle or select someone from the recommended list. Tap Add/Remove next to their name.

Step 3:

From the main menu, select Tweet to open the Tweet composer.

Step 4:

Select Everyone to display the Choose audience menu within the Tweet composer.

Step 5:

Select Edit next to the Twitter Circle option.

Step 6:

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.

Step 7:

Click on the X to continue drafting your Tweet. Now, when you select Tweet, only your Twitter Circle can view and reply to the tweet you created.

How to share a tweet with your Twitter Circle

You will share Twitter Circle Tweets the same way you send public Tweets. After you open the Tweet composer, select Everyone to display the Choose Audience menu. Select Twitter Circle as the audience, then compose and share your Tweet.
