Twitter plans to let two accounts co-create a tweet
This page was translated using AI and machine learning.
(Pocket-lint) – Twitter is “exploring” a new collaboration feature that would allow two accounts to co-create a single tweet.
According to TechCrunch, Twitter has even confirmed it’s considering the feature. Meanwhile, app researcher Alessandro Paluzzi tweeted about the feature’s development since last year, revealing how it might look and work. Its screenshots are laden with watermarks and therefore difficult to understand, but it looks like Twitter will allow you to invite other accounts to “collaborate” on tweets. You can ask a person or brand to “co-own” a tweet with you, but they must have public accounts and they must follow you.
Once published, collaborative tweets are shared with followers of both accounts, and both avatars are displayed in the corner of the message. It looks like the feature will be focused on brand partnerships and influencer campaigns, though other use cases could surely crop up. Presumably, Twitter will incorporate some controls to prevent popular accounts from being spammed with requests.

Twitter has yet to announce when it might roll out collaborative tweets. It’s also not clear what stage of the development process the feature is in, but Pocket-lint will keep you posted as we learn more.
