Currently, Twitter users are testing a new CoTweets function for 4$. By using the CoTweets feature, two accounts can write a tweet together and tag each other. The new feature is currently available for a brief period to users in the US, Canada, and Korea after Twitter tested the idea earlier this year.
Reportedly, the CoTweets functionality, which permits the primary tweet author to ask for a second person to be tagged in the tweet and debate its subjects through Direct Message, has been tested by several Twitter users today. In the final form of the tweet, comments appear only to be directed at the original author, even though the tweet was co-authored by two accounts.
Twitter says you can withdraw a CoTweet after it has been published if you accept a CoTweet invitation but then decide you do not want to be a co-author. Following that, the first tweeter will retweet the CoTweet as usual.
In addition, since only two writers can be displayed simultaneously in a CoTweet’s header, users can only invite one co-author. In a small trial, some accounts in Canada, Korea, and the US now have the option to invite others to CoTweet.
In light of Twitter’s statement that it is only testing CoTweet functionality for a brief period, it is obvious that Twitter wants to monitor how CoTweets are utilized before making improvements and offering the service to all users. Upon completion of the trial, Twitter may disable the feature and remove any CoTweets.
How To Publish A CoTweet?
1) Draft a tweet.
2) Click on CoTweet option to invite other user to CoTweet.
4) Publish the tweet as usual.
5) If you’re not interest to cotweet, then simply reject the CoTweet invitation.
6) Even if you accepted the invitation and later changed your mind, you can revoke the invitation.
