According to The Verge (via Input), the micro-blogging site seems to have a feature in development similar to Instagram’s Close Friends feature. But in the case of Twitter, you’ll be limiting your tweets to your “Flock.” Twitter has given a glimpse of the feature. Last year in July, Twitter has called it “Trusted Friends”.
Meanwhile, Twitter Communities has finally arrived on Android. Twitter Communities is a topic-based group feature by the micro-blogging platform. It was first introduced last year to iOS and the web.
While announcing the feature in a Tweet, the firm noted that "if you’re on Android, you can now engage in Communities via the Twitter app (make sure to update to the latest version!)."
Twitter launched 'Communities' for users to connect, similar to Reddit and Facebook Groups. Using the Communities, users can tweet with others sharing specific interests.
It functions like the groups of Facebook and Reddit’s subreddits in which each Twitter Community allows its moderators who become responsible for setting up rules and inviting and removing people from the group.
