Twitter will now help you thread tweets

Nice Threads - Twitter Blog

However, Twitter is now adding a "plus" button that will allow users to compose and publish threads in one go.

Twitter has now introduced an easy way for users to thread tweets together.

The move comes just a month after Twitter rattled the twitterverse by doubling the limit for tweets in most languages to 280 characters, in a bid to draw in more users and boost engagement. Additional tweets can be added to the published thread (or tweetstorm) via a new "Add another tweet" button. There's now a new plus ("+") button in the composer screen where you can type out your series of tweets. Followers will see these threads in a collapsed format, and click on a "show this thread" label to expand and read all the tweets. Twitter users have come up with their own creative ways to create their own "tweetstorms", but soon it should be much easier.

Twitter has indicated that the threading feature will be rolling out on Android, iOS and the web for all users over the course of the next few weeks.

Twitter announces official support for tweetstorms with new 'Threads' feature

As the company acknowledged in its blog post, threads are only the latest user-created feature to become official products within the app. With a new "Show Thread" option on posts that contain them, you will be able to read from top to bottom without having to dig through replies.

Twitter says "hundreds of thousands of threads" are posted daily. Repeat the process until your thread is complete, and then hit "tweet" to post the entire Thread all at once.

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. 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.
