How to Create Twitter Community

Do you want an isolated space for connecting with like-minded people on Twitter? If your response is yes, then start a community on X. In this article, we have shared the complete steps regarding how to create Twitter community. So, without further delay, let’s dive in!

What is a Twitter Community?

X community is an exclusive online space where people can join and interact with other individuals. Mostly, you will find like-minded people in these social media groups. They may share your interests and faith, making it a remarkable social circle.

Twitter communities are the same as Facebook’s groups, Reedit’s subreddits, and Discord servers. Twitter Premium subscribers can create a Twitter community. Anyone with an account can view the posts in X communities.

How Twitter Communities Works

Communities are created and managed by on X users, perhaps even you! Like if you are passionate about Generative AI, photography, or anything else, you could make a community for that in the future.

Invite-only communities allow members only to invite 5 users, but their admins and moderators can send unlimited invites. When you are a member of a community, you will see an option in the post composer to post to that community vs. followers.

Those posts will appear in the community and on your timeline. However, communities are not private. Everyone on X can see them, but only members can participate in the community.

What are the Requirements to Start an X Community

To create a Twitter community, your account must meet these eligibility criteria:

  • Your X account must be public. ( it should not even be protected; if you swap to protected, you will lose admin authority).
  • Twitter account must be six months old.
  • You must get verified on Twitter.
  • A verified email address or phone number should be associated with that account.
  • Your account must enable two-factor authentication.
  • You must be a member of Twitter Premium.
  • Your X account must not violate or have a history of violating X’s terms of service.

How do I Join X Community?
