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 tool is simple: Make a tweet, preferably a good one, and then add other tweets underneath it with the "plus" button.
Now, hundreds of thousands of threads are Tweeted every day! "Up to this point, when a user wanted to indicate that a tweet was part of a longer story and to expect a thread, they'd put something like "(1/?)" at the end of their tweet. Some of Twitter's most valuable users are the ones who post long threads discussing political policy or social issues, and they now have a more straightforward way of sharing their ideas.
The new threading tool will roll out to all users in the "coming weeks", Reddy said. With the new feature, Twitter makes stitching a thread an easier process, which wasn't one until now.
Before the new feature was announced users had to hit the reply button to their own tweets and sometimes number the posts on the thread to indicate it was a tweetstorm. It will be available on Twitter's apps for iOS and Android, and on the company's website.
Pretty soon, Twitter is going to be a blog platform with all the changes it is making to its formerly vanilla 140-character format. After your first tweetstorm goes, you can hit a button which says "Add another Tweet", then add another 25 to your original thread. Twitter's new Show this Thread feature will make things easy.
After they're done, users can tap "Tweet all" on the top-right of the screen, which will publish the entire thread simultaneously. This new feature is dedicated to making it easier for people to spot a thread amidst the hundreds of Tweets - which is often a hard task.
In addition, another handy feature allows you to go back and update a thread by adding new tweets after it already posted.
