Twitter is finally expanding the “Communities” feature. Four months after its release, now “Communities” comes to Android devices. The announcement was made through the bird’s social media.
In the latest version of the Twitter Android app, people will be able to find groups related to their interests and also chat with other like-minded people. With this, fans of plants, skin care, space, design and fashion can find groups on the topics and join. Even Twitter released a community of Wordle, the game of the moment on the social network.
Twitter is also planning to release new features for Communities. The main one would be one more option for adding members. Currently a user joins the community by invitation or if it is open. But, the idea is to have the option that Internet users can request participation, in which administrators could decide who to enter or not. Also in development is a ranked timeline with questions and answers and optional ways to highlight the best content in a community.
For now, it is not possible to create communities without Twitter approval. The platform requires the completion of a form in which the username, email and a summary of the proposed subject for the new group are informed.
What are “Communities”?
The feature called Communities aims to create and unite groups on the social network. The mechanics will be similar to Orkut communities and Facebook groups.
The company explained that the groups will be managed by the users themselves and initially an invitation to participate will be required. The creation of the first spaces depends on an approval by the platform.
Communities will always be visible to all users of the social network. Participants will be able to tweet to their timeline or just to a specific community. It is worth mentioning that it is necessary to have a public account. There will be a specific area to access Communities and view tweets.
