Twitter’s Trusted Friends is one of the most anticipated features users were waiting for. Last year, the company unveiled the Trusted Friends, but it’s not yet widely available. Now, the company has decided to rebrand the feature. Twitter Trusted Friends is now called Flock.

The Flock allows users to share their tweets with a specific group of followers—something like Close Friends on Instagram.

The matter of privacy in the platform has been so important for Twitter, and they’re investing in developing new privacy-driven features. Moreover, Twitter now has a new CEO that prioritized overhauling the security team.

If you have ever worked with Instagram Close Friends, you probably know how Flock works too. The Reverse engineer Alessandro Paluzzi has shared some images of how Flock works. Users can add up to 150 people to their Flock list as per the screenshots.

The Flock would be a hot feature at Twitter

The Flock is similar to Instagram Close Friends in many ways, but it has some differences. For example, if you add someone to your trusted Flock list, they will receive a notification that tells them about it. Good to show the level of trust and intimacy. However, the removed users from the Flock list will receive no notification.

We still don’t know when Twitter decides to roll out the feature. After Jack Dorsey stepped down as the company CEO, Parag Agrawal took his role, and now he is the one who decides about everything in the company.

Another possibility is that Twitter might make Flock available to its Blue Subscription users only. Blue Subscription is the premium version of Twitter that releases more features to users, like undoing tweets or bookmarks folders. The Blue Subscription is now available to users in the United States, Canada, and Australia. Since Flock seems like an exciting feature, Twitter has a good chance to make money with it.

Twitter is also working on the ability to record and replay Spaces. The feature has been active for some test users, but it will reportedly be available to all users a few months ahead.
