Now selected users are allowed follow others without creating an account on Twitter

Try Twitter

Twitter seems to be busy cooking something. They are trying and rolling out lots of new features and changes. For example, the company is testing a new list of statuses – which will allow users to mention a certain activity or mood when tweeting. In the paid department, the company recently increased the monthly price of Twitter Blue from $2.99 to $4.99. But perhaps one of the most unexpected additions to the service is the ability to follow others without creating an account.

The company is currently testing a trial Twitter feature with select users. As the name of this feature suggests, it allows eligible users to experience the service without having an account. Of course, the test drive comes with limitations. For example, users cannot tweet, like, retweet, or bookmark tweets. They can only follow certain accounts and view relevant tweets in a timeline. This gives users a taste of the service to help them decide if they want to join or not.

Interestingly, those who want to try the service without an account are forced to give the company access to their locations. The app will then ask them to follow at least one account and customize the timeline accordingly. Right now, Twitter is testing several variations of this feature with various tweaks here and there. Yet the main concept remains the same across all of them. It’s unclear when and if this beta feature will expand to all users down the road.
