Twitter might have begun as a way for people to share their thoughts and ideas short-form style, but as time went on, users began to find ways to post longer Tweets. This came in the form of what is known as “tweetstorming”, where basically users compose multiple tweets and post them in rapid succession.
However tweetstorms were never an official Twitter feature, although we have been hearing recently that the company could be testing something out. 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.
According to Twitter, “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.”
