Twitter officially launches 'threads' to make 'tweetstorms' easier

13 December 2017

Of course, with this feature, third-party tweetstorm apps will have no business model and will begin to die off.

This will give users another 280 characters to craft their story, and can be recreated as many times as is needed to finish the thread.

If you post a thread, the first tweet will appear in the timeline as normal, along with up to two more tweets from the thread. This will enable people to write their stuff, stitch it up all together then hit publish at once.

Users can continue to add tweets to the thread by tapping the plus icon until they're done. Followers will see these threads in a collapsed format, and click on a "show this thread" label to expand and read all the tweets. The social media platform lately expanded the 140 character limit to 280 characters with the aim to allow everyone "around the world could express themselves easily in a Tweet", as claimed by the company. Whether this is a good or bad update, all we still want is the ability to edit tweets.

Bills Defeat Colts, 13-7, In Overtime
Bills: Rookie Nathan Peterman went 5 of 10 for 57 yards before being sidelined by a head injury late in the third quarter. Without Gore, there would have been little the Colts could have done to generate first downs, much less points.

Users have adopted the tweetstorm for a number of reasons - to tell personal, suspenseful or amusing stories via Twitter, to connect facts surrounding breaking news, to rant about politics or other issues, or even to just make a longer post more readable and easier to follow.

"This decision was based on the retrospective work we've been doing around the 2016 USA election and the USA intelligence community's conclusion that both RT and Sputnik attempted to interfere with the election on behalf of the Russian government", Twitter said at the time.

In order to create a tweet thread, you press the small + button at the bottom right of the tweet composer.

Today on its official blog, Twitter announced its latest feature, Threads. Now it's doing that again by adding features that encourage self-reply chains and make it possible to publish such a thread all at once, rather than one tweet at a time. The new threading features are rolling out to everyone on iOS, Android, and in the coming weeks.
