Twitter Makes It Easier to Compose and Read Threads

Threads are becoming a common feature for the way we use Twitter as they give us a lengthy canvas to express our views, keeps everything together and makes Tweets easier to find. You can continue adding more Tweets to your published thread at any time with the new "Add another Tweet" button.

Twitter took another step towards longer-form content on its platform Tuesday: The company officially embraced threads, giving users a way to more easily string together a number of tweets. Sometimes something is really interesting but you lose the flow because the thread broke with a wrong reply or a deleted tweet or anything. 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. Twitter users have come up with their own creative ways to create their own "tweetstorms", but soon it should be much easier. The new feature will be available on both iPhone and Android versions of the Twitter app. Or they'd say outright the tweet was part of an incoming thread.

"We know people also may want to serialize a longer story or thought, or provide ongoing commentary on an event or topic", Twitter Product Manager Sasank Reddy said in a blog post.

Smith told ABC News (Australia) that the historic change was "owned by everyone, it is owned by the Australian people". The Prime Minister says it was the first time an opposition has made such as request.

With hundreds of thousands of tweets per day, according to Twitter, the feature should make it easier to follow mega-threads that have become increasingly common on the social media site.

The new feature comes after Twitter updated its 140-character limit this fall. Whether it's a tirade about an issue or a amusing or touching story that they're telling, Twitter threads are a good way to express your thoughts or tell a story. The name plays off the internal company vernacular of "threading" as the name for multiple tweets in a stream-of-consciousness post.
