Twitter launches new threads feature to make posting tweetstorms easier

Twitter

The composer now includes a "plus" button that lets you tack on additional tweets, with whatever you've written before still visible to help guide your train of thought. 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. After months of testing, it's adding a thread feature that simplifies creating and posting a series of tweets.

Add your thoughts about any Tweet with a Reply. Threaded tweets now have a "Show this thread" label, which makes it easier for users to spot threaded tweets on the microblogging platform.

In addition to being able to see the originator's sequential thread posts when viewing a thread, users can also see any responses from the rest of the Twitterverse. Sometimes it will be a longer essay sometimes marked by numbers, like 1/10, and other times it might resemble more of a bullet list, with each tweet in the thread another bullet point.

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

The new threading tool will roll out to all users in the "coming weeks", Reddy said. It's been how Twitter users have dealt with longer topics. And now, Twitter is making it official by introducing a new tool that will make it easier to both post and read threads. Twitter has repeatedly fielded criticism from its users after product changes for not addressing the cultural problems.
