Twitter started testing a new CoTweets feature back in June as a part of a limited-time experiment in the US, Canada, and Korea. This let two accounts co-author a tweet using the CoTweets option, and both accounts can be tagged in a single tweet. Now the company has official shut down the feature.
Twitter has confirmed that it is shutting down the CoTweets feature after months of testing. CoTweets will show in tweets for a month, after that it will revert to Retweets, said the company.
On its help page, Twitter said:
For the last several months we’ve been testing a new way to Tweet together using CoTweets. We’re sad to say that the current experiment is coming to an end.
CoTweets will no longer be available to create starting Tuesday, 1/31. Already existing CoTweets will be viewable for one more month, at which point they will revert to Retweets. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
We appreciate the feedback we’ve been given about CoTweets and we’re still looking for ways to implement this feature moving forward. We thank you for trying CoTweets and we’ve enjoyed watching all of your creativity with this feature come to life!
