What To Know About Twitter’s new “CoTweets” Feature

Amid the Elon Musk drama, Twitter rolls out a new feature.

Ever loved a Tweet so much you wished that you would have written it? Now, you can, with the advent of CoTweets.

Twitter announced last week that they will be adding a new feature to the platform, allowing users to co-post Tweets. The feature will be rolled out as a limited-time experiment, available to select accounts in the U.S., Canada, and Korea. The premise of CoTweets is to allow users to “share the spotlight, showcase their contributions and engage with more people.”

Two different Twitter users would be able to post a Tweet together, with that Tweet appearing on each of their individual profiles, much like Instagram’s collaboration feature from last year. In order to access the feature, the primary Tweet author must request the secondary author to join the Tweet via DM.

It appears that Twitter is still testing the functionality of the function, as just a few accounts currently have access to try it out. The news of CoTweets comes after the platform announced that they will explore the possibility of adding an ‘edit’ feature, something Twitter users have been calling for for years.

CoTweets also come after the recent news that Elon Musk is backing out of his $44 billion deal to buy Twitter, citing a lack of transparency and “false and misleading” information from the platform.
