Twitter today launched a new Thread feature which allows users to easily post more tweetstorms. Tweetstorms has been a part of the Twitter for many years. Most users have their own ways to post them. Many users post their tweets which are marked by numbers and publish it as a reply to the last tweet which makes easier for other people to read them properly. Twitter’s Thread is requested feature and the company has been testing its implementation.
Sasank Reddy, Product Manager, Twitter in a blog post wrote, “A few years ago we noticed people creatively stitching Tweets together to share more information or tell a longer story – like this. We saw this approach (which we call “threading”) as an innovative way to present a train of thought, made up of connected but individual elements.”
There are no limits on a number of tweets that you can add to the thread. You can use Threads feature to add as many times you want until your statements is complete.
How to use Twitter’s Threads feature:
- Compose a Tweet on Twitter.com and on its official apps.
- You will see the + symbol on top of the screen.
- Write your first tweet of the tweetstorms and later you will see the + icon becomes active.
- If you click the + icon, a new compose window will open and so on.
- Click as many threads you want, there is no limitation.
- Once you are done with your writing, then click on Tweet All button to post all your tweetstorms.
According to Twitter report, the Thread feature will roll-out to everyone in the coming weeks. Also, there is no word for the expansion to Tweetdeck, but it will also arrive soon. The company launches Twitter Threads just weeks after the Twitter’s character limit and the Bookmarks feature. Twitter is trying to offer the most user-requested features in order to keep the existing users. If you use Twitter regularly, you can see live this threads feature on Twitter.com.
In addition, another useful feature allows you to go back and update your thread by adding new tweets after it already posted. To make changes you just have to write the new tweet and tap the “Add another Tweet” button. By this, you can update your thread forever. Feel free to comment down below.
