The social giant Twitter has reportedly started testing a co-author feature, which is similar to what Instagram rolled out in 2021 on its photo and video-sharing platform. The feature is useful for those users who want to have their names attached to a single post / tweet, which is especially helpful for brand partnerships to influencer campaigns.
Once a tweet is published with Twitter’s co-author feature, it is shared with the followers of both accounts, and avatars of both users will be shown at the top left of the post. Twitter confirmed the testing of the co-author feature to TechCrunch,
According to the report, Twitter users will only be able to invite public accounts who follow them to co-author a tweet, and they will have to accept the invitation for them to appear as the co-author of the tweet.
The co-author feature was also spotted in the Twitter app’s code by mobile developer Alessandro Paluzzi, who first reported the feature back in December 2021. It is pertinent to mention that the mobile developer has also shared multiple screenshots of the collaboration feature.
