Twitter to make it easier to post threads and 'tweetstorms'

You can continue adding more Tweets to your published thread at any time with the new "Add another Tweet" button. Twitter now brings a new feature called the "Add another Tweet" - which as the name suggests will allow you to stitch together a Twitter thread in one single tweet.

It is the latest instance of the social network altering or adding a feature after reviewing feedback to keep its more than 300 million monthly active users engaged. But one trend it didn't predict was "tweetstorms", the multiple-tweet-long messages that exceed Twitter's character limit. You had to reply to yourself to get tweets to show up together in a line. Third-party Twitter clients, like Tweetbot, will have to be updated to support Threads.

The company said in a blog post that it was inspired to create the tool based on what users were already doing.

Typically, such threads have been relatively awkward to read and post, and the flow of a tweetstorm can be easily broken as other users interact with the individual posts.

Twitter announces official support for tweetstorms with new 'Threads' feature

Until now, there was no specific "Twitter thread" feature available for the users. Additionally, it's now simpler to spot a thread - we've added an obvious "Show this thread" label.

Things are also getting easier from the reader's side.

This new official thread tool will be rolling out to users on both the Android app and the web version over the next few weeks.

A Twitter thread is when someone posts a series of connected posts. It's been how Twitter users have dealt with longer topics. Twitter has repeatedly fielded criticism from its users after product changes for not addressing the cultural problems.
