Twitter is exploring new features that help users keep their personal and professional lives separate, including features that allow them to put a limit on who sees some tweets.

Called “trusted friends,” this concept allows users to tweet only to a selected group of friends or followers.

This is similar to Instagram’s “Close Friends” feature for Stories, as users no longer have to switch accounts to tweet to their audiences.

Another concept of the new Facets feature allows people to accept different personas using a single account. Others could follow the entire account or just the “edges” that interested them.

The first two ideas were shared on Thursday from Twitter designer Andrew Corte’s account by @a_dsgnr.

“We hear that you’re exchanging your tweets from the public, protected sub-accounts through juggling. It can be easier to talk to anyone whenever you want.” Courter wrote. “With trusted friends, you can tweet to the group of your choice. Maybe you can see the tweets of your trusted friends first.”

In another tweet, the designer wrote, “Here’s another approach that embraces the obvious truth: we are different people in different contexts (without friends, fam, work, community) Faces, the original idea, allows you to send tweets from individuals within 1 act. Others may apply for the entire accreditation … or just the aspects they are interested in. “

Twitter users seem to have responded positively to these ideas in general, but also expressed some of their concerns and ideas.

“I really like the idea of ​​these Facets. They allow people to follow you just because they’re interested in you. But every time you tweet, I’m afraid I’ll have a hard time choosing Facets and sometimes it’ll be too complicated.” replied a man.

“I think both are good ideas, but if I could choose one of them, the concept of trusted friends would have swallowed my hand,” another user replied. “Of course, ideas can be combined because the user can limit the visibility of certain aspects to their trusted friends.”
