Twitter Launches 'Twitter Circle' for Sharing Tweets With a Smaller Number of People

Twitter today announced it's launching "Twitter Circle," its new feature that allows users to share tweets, photos, videos, and more with only select users they choose.

twitter circle
The feature had been in testing since May and allows users to create a custom group with up to 150 accounts and share tweets with only those users rather than publicly.

With Twitter Circle, people now have 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.

Twitter Circle is rolling out today for users on iOS, Android, and the web.

Instead of me-too features like this to compete with messaging networks, I think Twitter should go back to its microblogging roots and change its whole model in one go.

My ‘less is more’ proposal:

* 2 dollars/month basic subscription to be able to post, tied to a credit card.
* No ads or recommendations; chronological posts only.
* Remote quote-tweets and native RTs, so people have to contextualise things they like or want to comment on. Remove badges.

This would kill bots, and cut out the gamification and status games and wankery. With the kind of people who are already on the platform, you’ll have high signal and low noise.

They also need to unsuspend ALL accounts and post clearly-defined rules that can lead to (re-)suspension. The current model of arbitrary suspension or failure to be suspended (based on whether Twitter likes you or not) is biased as hell and everyone knows it.
