If you are someone who wishes some tweets could be more private; rejoice, as this feature allows you to do that and we will explain how to use Twitter Circle.
Twitter Circle, a new feature, was released on Tuesday. The newly announced Twitter Circle, similar to Instagram’s close friends function, allows you greater power by allowing you to establish smaller groups for expressing your opinions. It can accommodate up to 150 people.
“Twitter Circle is a way to send Tweets to select people, and share your thoughts with a smaller crowd,” the firm explains, adding that “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.”
When you have a big Tweet that's meant for a smaller crowd, send it to your Twitter Circle –– now available for everyone.

The functionality allows you to select who will be in your Twitter Circle, and only the individuals you’ve added will be able to read, react to, and engage with the Tweets you share in the circle. Tweets sent to the group will be marked with a green label, and these tweets cannot be retweeted. Twitter Circle was first tested with a small group of individuals on iOS, Android, and the web in May 2022.
The functionality is now being made available to everyone worldwide. According to the firm, this functionality will eliminate the need for additional accounts by offering users the freedom and authority to send Tweets to a smaller group. Anyone on Twitter, even if they aren’t a follower, can be added to a circle. They will be able to see Tweets and responses shared in that circle once they enter it. The admin has the ability to change the circle at any moment. When someone is removed from the circle, they will not be notified. For the time being, Twitter only permits you to have one Twitter Circle.
How to use Twitter Circle?
Follow these steps to create a Twitter circle:
- Open Twitter and navigate to the tweet compose box. If you use the app for the first time after this update, it will ask you if you want to share your tweet with a limited audience. When you press yes, a dialog window will appear describing how the function works.
- In the tweet compose box, there is a drop-down box where you may select the audience for your tweet. Choose public if you don’t want to limit your viewers for that tweet and want to post it normally, or Twitter circle if you want a more limited set of viewers.
- Just next to the Twitter Circle is an edit button. Tap on it and choose who you want to add or delete from your circle.
