Twitter to let users make tweet threads more easily

Twitter to let users make tweet threads more easily

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.

Twitter might have begun as a way for people to share their thoughts and ideas short-form style, but as time went on, users began to find ways to post longer tweets. And even after you post it, you can continue adding tweets in case you still have some thoughts on your mind or if it's an ongoing live tweet thing.

With the new feature, users who create threads - stitching tweets together to tell a longer story - need no longer reply to previous tweets to do so. Additionally, it's now simpler to spot a thread - we've added an obvious "Show this thread" label.

In a blog post, Twitter's Product Manager Sasank Reddy explained: "Hundreds of thousands of threads are Tweeted every day".

Many replies to Dorsey's post called on Twitter to focus on dealing with extremists, trolls, and "bots" abusing the service instead of packaging tweets together. Once you're done with your manifesto, you can tweet everything at once.

The decision paid off in the 88th minute, when the France global rose highest to nod Alexis Sanchez's cross beyond Fraser Forster. They face Southampton at St Mary's on 10 December. "He has a very good goals-to-games ratio, but he now has to play".

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

Until now, there was no specific "Twitter thread" feature available for the users.

This new official thread tool will be rolling out to users on both the Android app and the web version over the next few weeks.

But Twitter is also in the midst of tackling deeper problems, such as harassment and social conduct on the network, and those aren't going to be addressed by simply giving people more room to express themselves.
