Twitter announces Tweetstorms: Better and Nicer Threads

13 December, 2017, 06:07 | Author: Rosa Wright
  • Twitter Now Lets You Create Multi Tweet Thread Before Tweeting

Users will also be able to update their threads later on by clicking on a tweet and pressing "add another tweet".

Twitter said it will make tweetstorms easier to find on your Twitter feed via a "Show this thread" label under tweets that have more to say. Sometimes something is really interesting but you lose the flow because the thread broke with a wrong reply or a deleted tweet or anything.

Alongside the Add another Tweet feature, Twitter has also introduced another feature called the "Show this thread".

After they're done, users can tap "Tweet all" on the top-right of the screen, which will publish the entire thread simultaneously.

Twitter launches feature to organize multi-tweet threads

Twitter has added the ability to create Twitter threads more easily.

Twitter will be rolling out thread support to iOS, Android and the desktop via the Web in the coming weeks. Don't forget to update your Twitter app to take advantage of this new feature.

Twitter has acknowledged that "hundreds of thousands of threads are tweeted every day", but sometimes they can be hard for some people to craft properly.

The tool is simple: Make a tweet, preferably a good one, and then add other tweets underneath it with the "plus" button. According to a BuzzFeed article published last week, 141-character-or-longer tweets receive more retweets and likes than those that remain within the 140-character confines, though the novelty of the longer tweets may factor into their popularity and may fade over time. He noted that Twitter users were creating threads, but that it was often a hassle to do so. The @reply, the hashtag, and the RT were all launched as official products based on patterns of user behavior, for example. In an effort to address concerns that threads might lead to a cluttered Twitter news feed, the micro-blogging site is displaying the first line of tweets in the timeline as usual followed by the second and third lines.
