Twitter team is evaluating new options to facilitate interaction on the platform. And for this, they have shown a series of new modalities so that you can control who can see your tweets.
One of the ideas that Twitter has presented is to give users the possibility to tweet for a group of choice. That is, you will be able to leave your account public and still decide to post certain tweets more privately, for example, only to your group of trusted friends.
So you will be able to alternate between public tweets and those that you only want your friends to see.
On the other hand, Twitter also proposed a concept of “facets”. That is, from the same account you will be able to tweet from your different roles or activities… professional, family, hobbies, etc. This way people can follow you only in the facet they are interested in reading you, for example, tweets related to your profession.
And on the other hand, you can have a private group for your family “facet” and publish tweets only for your closest environment. Or it could also be used to create thematic groups, and thus only target users interested in your tweets.
So instead of having separate Twitter accounts (personal/professional), you could have all your facets in one account. And a third concept they are evaluating is “Reply preferences”. This option would allow the user to specify which terms they would not like to read in the replies to their tweets.
If someone uses some of those terms, a warning will appear indicating that the user does not like that word. And to reinforce this dynamic, you can also set that responses with those terms are displayed at the end of the conversation.
Keep in mind that these are only concepts. Twitter is not yet developing these functions, so there is no certainty that one day they will be implemented on the platform.
