Twitter has started rolling out its version of Instagram's Close Friends to users around the world. Called Twitter Circle, the feature was announced earlier this month and it was limited to a select group of Twitter users.

In case you don't know about it, Twitter Circle allows you to define a set of users and share tweets with them. This, in essence, will allow Twitter users to share some tweets with a pre-defined set of users without letting the whole of Twitter see those tweets.

After testing the feature for roughly a month, Twitter has decided to roll it out to more users worldwide. If you are one of the chosen ones, you will see a pop-up as soon as you open Twitter on the web or on your mobile phone.

Currently, Twitter allows users to add up to 150 people in Twitter Circle and you can add users no matter if they follow you or not. While Twitter has disabled retweets for Twitter Circle, people can still screenshot and share tweets so you should not share any private information even if it is being shared with a select group of people.
