Twitter is now making tweetstorms an official feature

Twitter Threads Main

The good news is that it appears that the feature is indeed real, as Twitter has announced it which they are referring to it as "Threads", a feature which they are expected to roll out in the next few weeks.

People who want to use the new thread feature should make sure their app is up to date.

The company also announced that month that it would take steps to ban ads from Russian-funded news outlets after RT and Sputnik were identified by US intelligence agencies as part of the Russian government's effort to interfere in USA elections. This will enable people to write their stuff, stitch it up all together then hit publish at once. In addition, Twitter is adding a "Show This Thread" option to allow users to view all the tweets in a thread from the beginning.




Twitter recently expanded its character count from 140 characters to 280, but still saw the need to make it easier to serialize a longer story or thought. The feature also initially went live for a small number of users last month. A tweet now has a plus icon on the bottom right corner, that can be tapped or clicked to add another tweet to a thread. 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. Twitter has added a plus button in the composer so you can publish your threaded tweets at the same time. Threads will have a "Show this thread" label and tapping it will open the entire thread. Opening any of the tweets in the thread would let you see the previous and subsequent tweets in the thread.

Considering how popular Twitter threads are, it made sense for Twitter to add this feature within their app, which should be rolling out on iOS, Android and web in the coming days.
