Twitter shared several images of a potential new redesign that include an option to share tweets with a select group of people.

“Trusted Friends” enables Twitter users to limit the audience that can view a post, similar to Instagram’s “Close Friends” feature.

Another feature called “Facets” allows users to assign categories to tweets before hitting send, potentially allowing you to choose between work and personal in addition to other specific interests. Users could then pick whether they want to see everything someone posts or just particular topics.

Twitter could also add a mute feature that hides replies with certain words or phrases.

Although Twitter teased the features, the website is not actively developing them and is likely gauging users’ interest.
