Twitter CoTweets feature allows two users to co-author a tweet

Twitter has begun testing a new CoTweets feature with its users this week. CoTweets allows two accounts to co-author a tweet and tag both accounts in a single tweet. Twitter is now testing this new feature for a limited time for some users, after experimenting with it earlier this year. Select accounts in the United States, Canada, and Korea now have access to the functionality.

Twitter spokesperson Joseph J. Nuez said in a statement to The Verge, “We’re continuing to explore new ways for people to collaborate on Twitter.” Furthermore, the statement reads, “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 with CoTweets access can access the functionality by “tweeting jointly with CoTweets”

Users who have access to Twitter CoTweets can use the feature by “tweeting jointly with CoTweets” by clicking on a pop-up that appears in the tweet composer. According to Twitter, you may ask another account to co-own a tweet with you. If they agree, you will both appear as co-authors on a CoTweet that will be generated. A request to co-own a tweet with you will be sent to the person you’ve chosen. And they can accept or reject it based on their decision.

People who follow you and have public accounts can receive invitations to CoTweet from you. Additionally, you can only invite one co-author per CoTweet. Since only two authors can simultaneously appear on the header of a CoTweet.

According to Twitter, if after accepting a CoTweet invitation you decide that you no longer wish to be a co-author of that CoTweet, you can revoke the CoTweet after it has been published. The CoTweet will then become the original author’s normal tweet.

As Twitter’s embed capability hasn’t been upgraded to accommodate CoTweets yet, you might need to go straight to the tweets after seeing the example below.

Aside from business partnerships, the co-tweets capability might have a variety of additional uses. It might be used to release joint statements from groups, companies, or individuals. And or just to promote work such as podcasts, newsletters, or news stories with multiple authors or creators. Additionally, those who wish to collaborate on tweets for fun might also utilise it.

A co-author feature identical to this one has been offered on Instagram’s platform since last year, so it stands to reason that influencers and companies will use it as soon as it becomes available on Twitter.
