Twitter launches new threads feature to make posting tweetstorms easier

FRANCEINTERNETCOMPANYTWITTERSOCIALNETWORK

Threads are becoming a common feature for the way we use Twitter as they give us a lengthy canvas to express our views, keeps everything together and makes Tweets easier to find.

You've seen those series of tweets from celebrities or friends, when 140, oooppps we mean 280, characters are not enough.

In a blog post, Twitter's Product Manager Sasank Reddy explained: "Hundreds of thousands of threads are Tweeted every day". You had to reply to yourself to get tweets to show up together in a line. Some of Twitter's most valuable users are the ones who post long threads discussing political policy or social issues, and they now have a more straightforward way of sharing their ideas.

So even though that statement may not be entirely true, Twitter does like to roll out new features from time to time to meet the demands and needs of its users.

Nice Threads - Twitter Blog

Twitter has introduced a new feature called Add another Tweet which will allow you to continue adding more Tweets to your published thread at any time. The all-at-once tweetstorm also removes one of the unique virtues of the form, which New Republic editor Jeet Heer extolled in 2014: the ability to respond to feedback in near real time, as you write, and to let it influence the course of your published thoughts.

The official rollout will happen over the next few weeks on Twitter.com, and through updates to the app on iOS and Android.

Now that's no longer necessary, as they can just tweet the whole thing at once. Once you have completed the thread, you can then "Tweet All".

While Twitter users could already make threads - often called "tweetstorms" - on the social network, the process was not particularly intuitive. Additionally, it's now simpler to spot a thread - we've added an obvious "Show this thread" label. This new feature is dedicated to making it easier for people to spot a thread amidst the hundreds of Tweets - which is often a hard task.
