Twitter finally has an official thread tool for those serial tweets

  • Twitter now lets you create tweetstorms before tweeting

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. For many, it's been a useful workaround to get past what was then the company's 140-character limit on each tweet, which only changed to 280 characters last month. And of course, many will point out that Twitter is offering blog-length writing tools and still won't let you edit tweets if you make a mistake.

Well, the days of laboriously "threading", or chaining tweets together, will soon be gone. Other times, a thread can be a enormous waste of time that exists merely for the person to let you know that they're smart. That said, Twitter, which has absolutely no other pressing issues on its site at the moment, has made a decision to cater to tweetstormers with a new update.

Threads will be rolled out to iOS, Android and Twitter.com users in the coming weeks, so make sure to keep your app updated.

So, in case you haven't yet got the feature, ensure to update your Twitter app to the latest version.

After they're done, users can tap "Tweet all" on the top-right of the screen, which will publish the entire thread simultaneously.

He became the new web-squirting superhero when Peter Parker died in the hands of Green Goblin. Playing off this is the "Spider-verse", one universe where there are multiple Spider-Men.

Once your thread is complete, hit send, and the whole post will be sent at the same time.

Multi-part tweetstorms are a staple of Twitter, for better or worse, and the social network wants them to be as easy to write as possible. 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.

Twitter has introduced a new feature called Add another Tweet which will allow you to continue adding more Tweets to your published thread at any time.

For those who are just reading the tweets, it's now easier to spot thread because they now come with a "Show this thread" label.
