Now it’s being made extra extensively accessible. The choice is presently accessible on desktop solely, however the module itself, as soon as activated, is seen on all units.
It may very well be a great way for model accounts to focus on related Twitter communities, and encourage extra associated engagement and dialogue, which may assist to extend engagement and alignment within the app.
Although communities stay a reasonably area of interest providing, with just some Twitter communities taking off, and lots of being left by the wayside as they go in opposition to the ‘public sq.’ ethos of the app.
