Twitter has recognised how many users love to tell a story in multiple tweets, aka a thread. These stories may be a coverage of events or just a user’s rants but whatever it is, Twitter has now made it easy to let other people create and follow threads.
In its new update, you will see a + sign at the bottom right corner of your tweet composer. When you send the first tweet, two more will show below it on your followers’ feed, then there’s a ‘show thread‘ option that allows them to see your full one. Here’s how that will work:
Sasank Reddy, Product Manager at Twitter wrote in blog that:
‘Now, hundreds of thousands of threads are Tweeted every day! But this method of Tweeting, while effective and popular, can be tricky for some to create and it’s often tough to read or discover all the Tweets in a thread. That’s why we’re thrilled to share that we’re making it simpler to thread Tweets together, and to find threads, so it’s easier to express yourself on Twitter and stay informed.’
He also added that the new feature will roll out to iOS, Android and web Twitter platforms in coming weeks so look out for the update.
