Two birds, one tweet: Twitter tests ‘CoTweet’ feature
Twitter appears to be testing the ability of two people to write a single tweet.
Italian mobile developer Alessandro Paluzzi and social media consultant Matt Navarra were among the first to test the feature, posting the first “CoTweet” in the Big Tech company’s history on Thursday morning. The feature displays two separate authors in the profile line, each with a selectable profile link.
“This feature is not officially available yet, I was just playing with it,” Paluzzi said in a follow-up tweet.
Paluzzi has been involved in designing the CoTweet function and has spoken about it multiple times since December 2021.
“We’re continuing to explore new ways for people to collaborate on Twitter,” a Twitter spokesperson told the Washington Examiner. “We’re testing CoTweets for a limited time to learn how people and brands may use this feature to grow and reach new audiences, and strengthen their collaborations with other accounts.”
Users will be able to send an invite to CoTweet, which can be accepted or declined, according to screenshots posted by Paluzzi. If accepted, both users’ names will be listed on the tweet.
While Twitter is waiting for the finalization of Elon Musk’s acquisition of the company, it has continued innovating and adding additional features. The most recent addition was the company’s decision to begin testing a “Notes” feature, which will allow users to post long-form content in a single tweet.
