Twitter Introduces New 'Threads' Feature for Posting Tweetstorms
13 December, 2017, 06:36 | Author: Julian Harrison
Twitter has now introduced an easy way for users to thread tweets together.
The company is also responding to users' concerns that by making tweetstorms more accessible to people, the Twitter timeline will become cluttered with longer posts that slow down users' ability to quickly scan through posts, the way you can now. This lets you continue to update a thread forever - something Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey already does with his own threads, for example.
The latest change comes only weeks after the social network doubled its long-standing 140-character limit to 280 characters.
Twitter has acknowledged that "hundreds of thousands of threads are tweeted every day", but sometimes they can be hard for some people to craft properly. 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.
Users can then write in their first tweet. There are no limits to the number of Tweets that you can add to the thread - so you can use the Add another Tweet feature as many times you want until your narrative is complete. Oh, and they're still calling it threads to avoid any confusion.
Users on Twitter have long used threads to communicate in long form, since tweets are limited to 280 characters.
People who want to use the new thread feature should make sure their app is up to date.
We've made it easy to create a thread by adding a plus button in the composer, so you can connect your thoughts and publish your threaded Tweets all at the same time.
In addition, another handy feature allows you to go back and update a thread by adding new tweets after it already posted. Now it's doing that again by adding features that encourage self-reply chains and make it possible to publish such a thread all at once, rather than one tweet at a time. Or they'd say outright the tweet was part of an incoming thread.
A company spokesperson confirmed the feature was skipped from the start on these devices but didn't elaborate the "why" part. For the record, the OnePlus 5T can stream in a higher resolution than SD on YouTube .
