Twitter launched its “Communities” feature back in September last year. Twitter Communities are just like Facebook groups, where people with similar interests can connect and talk. Moderators of these communities can set the rules and invite others to join. Initially, creating a community was limited but now anyone can create it. So if you also want to start your own community, we are here to help. Read on to know how to start your own Twitter community.
Create Your Own Twitter Community
In order to start your own Twitter community, you will need to meet these requirements:
- Your Twitter account must be public (It should not be even protected, if you switch to protected, you will lose admin privileges).
- Your account must be at least six months old.
- Either a verified email address or a phone number should be linked to that account.
- Twitter account must have two-factor authentication (2FA) enabled.
- Lastly, your Twitter account must not violate or have a history of violating Twitter’s terms of service.
Steps to Create Twitter Community
If you want to start your own Twitter community, you will need to fill up a form. After that, Twitter will let you know if your community can be created or not.
1. Open the Twitter communities interest form.
2. Now fill in the form which requires your verified email and the topic for your community and what type of people you want to join your community.
3. After filling in all the details, click on Submit.
That’s all. Once you submit the form, Twitter will review your account and community interest topics to take further action. Once your community is found appropriate, you can start posting in your community for the people whom you invite to join it.
