How to become a moderator?

I've noticed that a bunch of people have recently been made moderators, which makes their avatar have a green circle around it. I've been wondering, what does it take to become one? Do you just have to be really helpful in discussions? Do you have to be at a certain level in a language? Thanks to any moderators/Duolingo employees who respond.

Hi! We're testing out a new moderator program. We'll be sharing how you can apply to be one soon. Thanks for being a part of the Duolingo community :)

Great. That is definitely something I would be interested in.
