A rather strange function is testing Twitterit’s about CoTweets, a way for two people to be authors of a tweet and edit the content together.
“We continue to explore new ways for people to collaborate on Twitter,” explains Twitter spokesman Joseph J. Nuñez in a statement to TheVerge. “We’re testing CoTweets for a limited time to learn how people and brands can use this feature to grow and reach new audiences, and strengthen their collaborations with other accounts.”

Several Twitter users have been testing the CoTweets feature, and the experience allows a primary author of a tweet to invite another person to be tagged in the tweet and discuss the content via DM. The second account must approve the co-authored tweet, and the resulting message shows that it is co-written by two people, but the replies appear to be directed only at the main author of the tweet.
