Twitter launches new threads feature to make posting tweetstorms easier

Twitter

When you see a Tweet you love, tap the heart - it lets the person who wrote it know you shared the love.

So whenever you feel like you're going on an epic Twitter thread, you can now officially create a thread by clicking the plus button on the composer so you can connect your tweets together.

It is the latest instance of the social network altering or adding a feature after reviewing feedback to keep its more than 300 million monthly active users engaged.

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. Another approach for threading tweets within Twitter was to reply to your own tweet and remove the handle.

The company said in a blog post that it was inspired to create the tool based on what users were already doing. And Threads from other Twitter users will have a new "Show this thread" label, making them easier to spot. This came in the form of what is known as "tweetstorming", where basically users compose multiple tweets and post them in rapid succession.

Things are also getting easier from the reader's side. This was a cumbersome method to thread tweets and as such not a simple or intuitive way to go about it.

The change, according to Twitter, will be rolling out to the Twitter site and iOS app in the coming weeks. With the new feature, Twitter makes stitching a thread an easier process, which wasn't one until now. It's been how Twitter users have dealt with longer topics.
