When using social media, privacy is probably something that is often forgotten by its users because the concept of social media is to “share”. But over time, users have become more aware of what they share on their respective platforms, so security features are also increasingly being used.
One of them, the “Close Friends” feature on Instagram, which makes not everyone publicly able to see the Instagram Story uploaded by someone, and only allows a handful of “trusted” people to see it. This feature seems to be coming soon to Twitter with the name Twitter Flock.
According to a report from Twitter user Alessandro Paluzzi on the @alex193a account, Twitter Flock, which is still in the development process, will allow users to choose up to 150 people to be included in Flock. And everyone who is in this Flock will be able to see a tweet, and even reply to the tweet. If the user doesn't want someone to be in his Flock anymore, the user can freely remove that person without any further notification or notification.

How can one tell whether one is Flocked or not? Paluzzi reports that you can see this Tweet because the author has added you to their Flock.” under someone's tweet as an indication of whether he or she is in Flock or not.

For now, because it is still testing and developing, it is not certain when this feature will be released to be used by all Twitter users. In your opinion, will this Flock feature be interesting and better in maintaining the privacy of its users?
