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

Twitter Threads make tweet storms an official feature

Nice Threads - Twitter Blog

Twitter said Tuesday said it would make it easier for users to build "tweetstorms" by linking together posts in "threads" to expound at length at the famously short-form messaging service.

According to Twitter, "This method of Tweeting, while effective and popular, can be tricky for some to create and it's often tough to read or discover all the Tweets in a thread".

Just last month, Twitter doubled the character limit for tweets from 140 to 280, in a major shift. The composer now includes a "plus" button that lets you tack on additional tweets, with whatever you've written before still visible to help guide your train of thought.

The company said in a blog post that it was inspired to create the tool based on what users were already doing. Threaded tweets now have a "Show this thread" label, which makes it easier for users to spot threaded tweets on the microblogging platform.

In its taunting statement, the APC further said, " The abnormalities that trailed the PDP national convention have further exposed the PDP as a party is not ready and willing to change ".

Users have always been able to unofficially go on long rants, also known as tweetstorms. Once you're done with your manifesto, you can tweet everything at once. If someone has made a threaded tweet, you can click or tap on a new option called "Show this thread" to see everything at once.

Until now, there was no specific "Twitter thread" feature available for the users.

"This will make some of the thoughtful longform posts on Twitter more accessible to a broader range of people".

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. Twitter has repeatedly fielded criticism from its users after product changes for not addressing the cultural problems.
