Twitter is working on new ideas that will allow users to specifically choose the people who can see their tweets. Now a company designer has revealed two features that the company is said to be working on. The first one is the “Trusted Friends” feature. The second idea will aid users who have multiple handles.

The post mentions that Twitter is working on an idea to allow users to share a particular tweet to a certain group of “Trusted Friends.” The feature seems to be similar to what Instagram offers with its “Close Friends” tool.

As per the tweet, the company is “exploring a bunch of ways to control who can see your Tweets”. The designer shared two ideas while stating that the company is “not building these yet.”

The designer tweeted that the second feature may be named Facets and will allow users to tweet from multiple handles from one account. This will eliminate the issue pertaining to switching between multiple accounts. Additionally followers may also have an option to follow “the whole account or just Facets they’re interested in.”

Other social media apps including Instagram are also working on bringing new features and changes to the platform. Instagram is said to working on a new feature called “Exclusive Stories”, if recent reports are to be believed. The new feature will allow users access to their favourite creators’ stories. The feature seems to be related to paid subscriptions which will allow access of creators’ stories only to fans.
