In September, Twitter started testing a new feature called Communities, designed to connect users who share common interests but don’t follow each other on the platform.

Similar to Facebook Groups, Twitter Communities will be created and managed by admins and moderators. During the rollout, members will be added on an invite-only basis.

Community members will be able to adjust the settings of their Tweets to post Community-specific content. Tweets posted to Communities will be publicly visible, but only other Community members will be able to interact with them.

The new feature is currently available to test group participants on iOS and web. Twitter set up a dedicated account, @HiCommunities, where they will share updates about the feature.
