Twitter is exploring a new way to publish messages that would allow users to co-author a tweet, TechCrunch reports, citing Alessandro Paluzzi, a mobile developer. Although the "Collab" feature was first revealed in December 2021, the latest update gives more information about how it works.
Paluzzi also added that one can collaborate on tweets with only those people who have a public account and who follow you back. It is still unclear when the option will be publicly available for all users.
Twitter's latest feature is part of moving toward the creator platform. For instance, To The Moon previously reported that Twitter is also developing a dedicated tab for podcasts in mobile apps to strengthen its presence in the social audio space.
Earlier, the San Francisco-based social network also allowed its users in India to tip creators via Paytm, a payment gateway option. The feature is available to all users above the age of 18 in India on mobile applications for Android or iOS.
However, Twitter's feature for co-authorship is nothing new in the social media market as Instagram rolled out the same option called "Collabs" back in October 2021.
