Twitter adds ‘Threads’ feature to make Tweetstorming easier

Twitter users clamoring for extension of the number of tweets allowed on the platform got a cheering news earlier, as if that's not enough, the company has launched a new feature that will allow people to more easily post tweetstorms.

While tweetstorm is simply a series of connected tweets, which is quite a popular workaround for getting past Twitter’s character count limitation.

Albeit, this method of Tweeting, while effective and popular, can be tricky for some users to create and it’s often tough to read or discover all the Tweets in a thread.

Twitter's new thread feature makes it simpler to thread Tweets together, and to find threads, so it’s easier for users to share and discover information on the platform. And the use case includes; to connect facts surrounding a breaking news, personal rant or political discus and other issues, or to just make a rather long post easier to read.

The threads feature makes it all easy, as there’s now a plus (“+”) button in the composer screen where users can type out their series of tweets.

Also, you can add GIFs, images, videos, and more, to any individual tweet in the thread, as is normal on Twitter composer. And you can go back and edit the tweets at any time while composing your tweetstorm.

There’s currently a limit of 25 entries in a thread, but Twitter assures that it is subject to change depending on wide adoption of the new feature by the user base. It is currently rolling out on all platforms, including iOS, Android and the web.
