Twitter ended testing CoTweets, the platform’s collaborative tweets. In experimentation on the social network since July last year, the tool allowed two people to tweet together, similar to what happens with collaborative publications on Instagram.

- Twitter will allow setting chronological feed as default in the app
The withdrawal of the function happens discreetly, with a simple notice on the support page dedicated to CoTweets. In the notice, the company announces that the feature will be discontinued on Tuesday (31).
For one month, collaborative tweets will continue to display with dual authorship, after which they will convert to traditional posts.
Twitter didn’t elaborate on why it ended support for CoTweets, but perhaps a lack of interest in the feature is one of the reasons. The reduced team of developers, the remnants of the cuts after the purchase of Elon Musk, must not have found time to increase the function.
Despite the suspension, the company says it is “looking into ways to implement the feature in the future”.
