Last August, Twitter rolled out the option for users to choose who can reply to their tweets. You can select ‘everyone,’ ‘people you follow,’ or ‘people you mention.’ Prior to this latest roll out, you could only make this decision before the tweet had been sent.
Twitter has now given users more control over the discussion happening in their replies.
It’s worth noting that even if you limit replies on your tweet, users can still ‘quote tweet’ the post to make a comment.
