Twitter has launched a new feature that allows users to control the number of people that can access their tweets.

In a Twitter post on Tuesday, the social media giant said the feature, known as Twitter Circle, will allow users to select up to 150 people who they can share their tweets with exclusively.

Only people in the circle will be able to view, reply to and interact with the tweets.

“When you have a big Tweet that’s meant for a smaller crowd, send it to your Twitter Circle –– now available for everyone,” the microblogging platform wrote.

“Select up to 150 people who can view and interact with the Tweets you send in your Circle. Get started from the Tweet composer or sidebar menu.”

The post was accompanied by a video that explains how users can select their “circle”.

Twitter said the feature will allow users to build deeper connections with their followers without giving up the option of talking to everyone on the timeline.

How To Create Your Circles

Twitter Circles are created in users’ settings. Users thereafter send tweets to their circle by following the prompt that pops up when drafting a new tweet.

Tweets sent to a circle are denoted with a marker at the bottom and appear on the general timeline of the circle follower. Only fellow circle followers will be able to reply and see new replies.

Twitter began the testing of the feature in May among a few users — before making it available for the public globally.

“Some Tweets are for everyone & others are just for people you’ve picked. We’re now testing Twitter Circle, which lets you add up to 150 people who can see your Tweets when you want to share with a smaller crowd. Some of you can create your own Twitter Circle beginning today!” it wrote.
