Twitter would allow you to share the authorship of your tweets with other accounts very soon
Very soon, Twitter would allow you to share the authorship of your tweets with other users. This is revealed by the most recent findings of the renowned leaker Alessandro Paluzzi, who has published screenshots of this new feature. And although the feature has not yet been announced by the social network, its launch could be getting closer.
According to the screenshots, users will be able to invite other accounts (which can be personal or branded) to co-author a tweet. The process appears to be quite simple, although it still requires compliance with certain parameters.
As it was known, the first step to share the authorship of a tweet on Twitter will be to send a collaboration request to another profile; this can be done directly from a visible button when creating it. Once the collaborator accepts the request, the publication can be sent, which will show who the co-authors of the publication are.
An important point to note is that you can only collaborate with people or brands whose accounts are public and who follow the user who makes the invitation. Once the collaborative tweet is published, Twitter will show it to both the followers of the main creator and those of the co-author.

For now, Paluzzi has been able to trace signs of co-authorship of tweets until last December, which suggests that its definitive implementation could be just around the corner.
It is worth mentioning that the concept of shared publications that Twitter is developing is not exactly new in the field of social networks. Remember that last year Instagram incorporated a similar option that allows two accounts to share the authorship of a photo, a video or a Reel. Thus, the content is displayed on both profiles and the count of likes and comments is shared.
Twitter would finalize details before the launch of the collaborative tweets

The social network has been working very hard on the implementation of new features for several months, such as the option to individually label tweets with sensitive content.
The platform has also expanded the scope of its “Dislike” button and implemented better tools to identify automated accounts (bots). To this has been added the option to share fragments of the recordings of the Spaces; And let's not forget the ability to create and share GIFs from iOS.
However, not all the changes implemented by Twitter have been positive. A short time ago, the social network reversed the controversial modification to the timeline chronology, which received strong criticism from users. And looking to the future, the service is also preparing Flock, an Instagram-style “best friends” feature.
It is clear, then, that the Twitter development team is working tirelessly on the implementation of new features that will gradually earn a place on the platform; We'll see when we will have more official news about it.
