Communities is one of the many features Twitter announced recently. As the name suggests, a Twitter community is a discussion space where people with similar interests can connect. It started testing the first community in the US last month, and it has now introduced the feature in India.
The Cricket Twitter - India community is now live on the web and the iOS and Android apps. It currently has 25 members in total and interested users can follow this link to join the group.
How Twitter Communities work
Similar to Facebook Groups, Communities on Twitter are made up of members who join and invite others to join. Tweets go out only to members of the community instead of all your followers. Community tweets are available for everyone to read, quote, tweet or report but only members can reply and join the conversation.
The community feed is similar to the main Twitter feed where you see tweets by members of the group. There’s also an about section where the rules and details of the community are explained.
Live cricket scorecard
Twitter has also launched a live cricket scorecard in India. This scorecard will appear on Twitter’s Explore tab and on the live events page. It will display scores in real-time which users can check while scrolling through tweets. The scorecard is rolling out to everyone in India on iOS, web as well as Android. Twitter plans to add more features in the coming weeks that will make it easier for users to find relevant match content, and also join conversations with fellow fans.
