Twitter has wrapped testing on ‘Circle’ yesterday, a feature that allows users to post a tweet to a select set of people, and released it globally. 

Users can add up to 150 people to their Circle, who do not get notified of the event. In a blog post, the company explains: “You choose who’s in your Twitter Circle, and only the individuals you’ve added can view, reply to and interact with the Tweets you share in the Circle. People in your Circle will see a green badge under Tweets sent to the group.” 

Users also cannot retweet a circle tweet, or leave a Circle, only be removed. In order to leave, they have to block the circle owner.

Last week, Twitter redesigned its ‘Spaces’ tab to include ‘Stations’, a new podcast hub that groups content together based on different topics, such as news, music, and sports, featuring some of the most popular podcasts from around the world as well as some recommendations based on the themes that people follow.
