Twitter It has evolved greatly in recent years. Gone is the web where only text messages were shared with a 140 character limit. Currently, the social network is able to stand up to multiple platforms after the introduction of new features that, until recently, were unthinkable. One of these proposals are the Communities, which after its presentation last February finally saw the light today.
The goal of Twitter Communities is simple: to become a serious rival to Facebook groups, Reddit and any other platform to interact with people in a group way. It is worth mentioning, yes, that for now the functioning of the Communities is quite limited. If users wish to create their own group, they must send a request through the following link. However, filling out the form does not guarantee the creation of the community.
“Would you like to create and moderate your own community on Twitter? If so, please let us know so we can consider you as we add more communities. The Communities are only accessible by invitationFor now, but we are working for people to discover the communities they would like to be part of and join them, “the company mentions.

Unfortunately, the parameters that Twitter takes into account to approve the creation of the community are unknown. Certainly the idea has a lot of future potential, although at the moment it does not work as many would like.
“With Communities, moderators choose the topic, create the rules, and invite people who will make them a great place to chat. Think of communities as places created for conversation where the vibe and tone are set by people who share the same They have the same interests and want to have relevant conversations. Moderators set the rules and can also invite others to moderate their space to stay on track. “
Once Communities begin their global rollout – starting today and over the next few days – you’ll see a new tab in the bottom bar. It has an icon with two users, so you will have no problem identifying it. Once you join a community, it is possible to share posts that will only be visible to the members of the group, not your followers.
Among the Communities that are already created and ready to receive new users are those of hobbyists. meal, astrology, puppies and cryptocurrencies, to name just a few. Of course, the proposal will be really interesting when it is easier to create and moderate your own group.
