X (Formerly Twitter) Tests Display of Communities Post on For You Feed  

Elon Musk’s X corporation, formerly Twitter (I feel odd saying that) has announced that they are starting to test the option of communities posts appearing in the ‘For You’ feed. If you remember Twitter has been playing around with circles and communities. These are small-group-type of congregations inside a public space like Twitter, where you can address just a specific group of people. After this whole transition from Twitter to X, these circles and communities were basically ignored. But now it seems like X is bringing the focus back to communities. And now your communities posts are going to start appearing in the main ‘For You’ feed. Could be significant for you as a ministry because now your community posts will start getting more exposure in the ‘For You’ feed.
