Twitter Circle feature disappeared or missing for some users

Twitter Circle is the latest feature released by Twitter which allows its users to have the flexibility to choose who can see and engage with their content on a tweet-by-tweet basis.

Before tweeting, users get an option to choose whether they want to share a tweet with their circle or all of their followers.

Circles can contain up to 150 people, and users can add followers in or out of the list without them being notified about it. This feature is similar to what Instagram introduced as ‘Close friends’.

Since this feature got rave reviews while in the testing phase, many Twitter users were excited to finally get access it after the global rollout on August 30.

But users are reporting that while they had access to this feature before the global release, it has suddenly gone missing from their Twitter accounts.

This issue is not limited to any particular platform as users have complained that iOS, Android, and web versions are all affected.

Anyone else hasn’t got access to Twitter Circles? Twitter announced that everyone has access to Twitter Circles but my account hasn’t gained access to the feature yet. Anyone else experiencing this? I’m also wondering if it’s because of the quality of my account since my newer accounts can gain access to the features, but not the main one. According to blolook it was blocked by 100+ accounts.

ARE YOU KIDDING ME i had a twt circle like two days ago and now the button disappeared and i had such a good idea for it too :(((

Unfortunately, there is still no official acknowledgment of this issue from Twitter support, so there is no guarantee that a fix will come soon.
