You probably know Facebook groups and how they work, now, popular microblogging platform Twitter is bringing their own groups dubbed Twitter Communities to the app.
“We are working to create a product experience that makes it easier for people to form, discover and participate in conversations that are more relevant to the communities or geographies they are interested in.” Twitter says.
Twitter Communities will let you create and join groups based on your interests. You will then be able to tweet to these groups alone, and not to everyone on Twitter.
Once again, Jane Manchun Wong has shared screenshots of Twitter Communities in testing and they look similar to what Twitter had showcased while announcing the feature.

Tweeps will now get options while sending a tweet, the options include “Everyone” or you choose among communities you’re part of.
The community page on Twitter will have a home feed and an about section. Only members in a specific community can tweet and reply to each other but everyone can view, like, quote tweet, and share tweets. The about page list the creator of the community, and the date it was created.
So far, these Twitter Communities are public but there could be options to make the groups private.
Twitter has apparently showcased the feature and the ‘Super Follows’ feature to analysts and investors but is yet to announce a launch timeline for the features. With these features, Twitter aims to double annual revenue and reach at least 315 million users by 2023.
