    X introduces revamped Communities feature, pushes topics-based networking


    Microblogging platform X, formerly known as Twitter, is rolling out a major update to its Communities feature, in an effort, to enhance user networking and interaction around specific topics of interest. As per an announcement by the company last Thursday, the move improves search, sorting, user recommendations and other options.

    The overarching goal of the Communities feature revamp is to better connect X’s user base with like-minded individuals, enabling them to share content, comment on posts, and engage in discussions within dedicated spaces centred around particular themes or subjects.

    Posts in the new Communities tab are categorized and highlighted under particular topics. Users, as per the company, will now be able to discover trending posts by using the Explore tab within the section.

    According to a TechCrunch report, the move could have significant implications for Elon Musk’s xAI, and its chatbot Grok, which already has access to real-time data from the platform. This, the report says, could be further strengthened by making available a steady stream of real-time data, something similar to Twitter’s firehose API.

    The company stated that looking ahead, X has plans to introduce additional features to the Communities offering, including community analytics for moderators, integration with the platform’s live audio product (Community Spaces), and improved moderation tools to ensure a safe and engaging environment for users.

    The feature arrived around the same time as the company’s decision to change its website URL from Twitter.com to X.com. In a note published, on its site, the company said, “We are letting you know that we are changing our URL, but your privacy and data protection settings remain the same. For more details, see our Privacy Policy: https://x.com/en/privacy.”
