Twitter announces Tweetstorms: Better and Nicer Threads

Twitter now lets you create tweetstorms before tweeting Nice Threads - Twitter Blog
Derrick Tucker | 13 December, 2017, 06:10

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.

"A few weeks ago, we expanded our character count to make it easier for people to fit what they're thinking into a Tweet".

However, it can be hard to follow an entire thread at times, and with the number of tweets constructed in this manner growing, Twitter has stepped in. Click on the "Tweet all" button at the top of the composer to finally share the threaded post. Twitter recently doubled the limit, which was previously set to a maximum of 140 characters. Twitter users have come up with their own creative ways to create their own "tweetstorms", but soon it should be much easier.

Twitter notes that Threads is one of the latest user-created features to become official products within the app. You need to update your iOS or Android App.

Geminids this Wednesday 'could be a really dynamite show'
But the recent respite from rain could tilt the odds in our favor, according to the National Weather Service (NWS). The moon won't rise until 3 a.m., so the night will be dark - as long as you get away from the city.

"[.] Hundreds of thousands of threads are Tweeted every day", said Reddy in a post.

The Add another Tweet feature already out of the testing process - and Twitter has already started rolling out to everyone.

Users have adopted the tweetstorm for a number of reasons - to tell personal, suspenseful or amusing stories via Twitter, to connect facts surrounding breaking news, to rant about politics or other issues, or even to just make a longer post more readable and easier to follow. Users will be able to tap a button while writing their tweet and link a second tweet to it and so forth. It's a curious sentiment considering Twitter users have been clamoring for years for some kind of edit function and have yet to receive it, but we digress.

Users can select "add another tweet" rather than the reply button when they are posting several tweets on the same issue.
