Twitter makes 'tweet storms' easier with 'threads'

Nice Threads - Twitter Blog

The move builds on the company's recent decision to abandon its traditional 140-character count for 280 characters to allow people more room per tweet - even as the social network struggles to clarify its policies on what is appropriate conduct on Twitter.

You know those times when the space of a single tweet isn't enough?

"[.] Hundreds of thousands of threads are Tweeted every day", said Reddy in a post. "Up to this point, when a user wanted to indicate that a tweet was part of a longer story and to expect a thread, they'd put something like "(1/?)" at the end of their tweet.

Nikki Haley: Trump's Assault Accusers Should Be Heard, Even After the Election
When asked how people should "assess" Trump's accusers, Haley said that those women, too, "should be heard". Tell both sides to come together and say, 'Okay, you decide how you want to split up Jerusalem.

Twitter on Tuesday announced a set of changes that will make the Twitter essay, also known as the tweetstorm or thread, a core feature rather than a workaround. You can continue adding more Tweets to your published thread at any time with the new "Add another Tweet" button.

On a slightly more polite level, this will be a useful feature for some users, but it also does open the door to giant piles of harassment, and not just by the service's notorious racists with inexplicable anime avatars.

So, in case you haven't yet got the feature, ensure to update your Twitter app to the latest version.

In order to create a tweet thread, you press the small + button at the bottom right of the tweet composer. The company confirmed last month it was testing the feature - which it's now calling "threads" - across its iOS and Android apps. Tap it to add more tweets to your original post so you can string them together into one long thread, and tweet it all at once. Repeat the process until your thread is complete, and then hit "tweet" to post the entire Thread all at once. 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.

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