How To Do Threads On Twitter With New Tweetstorm Feature

Nice Threads - Twitter Blog Twitter launches feature to organize multi-tweet threads
Pete Mitchell | 13 December, 2017, 06:36

Twitter said it will make tweetstorms easier to find on your Twitter feed via a "Show this thread" label under tweets that have more to say. It's a curious sentiment considering Twitter users have been clamoring for years for some kind of edit function and have yet to receive it, but we digress. After months of testing, it's adding a thread feature that simplifies creating and posting a series of tweets. You had to reply to yourself to get tweets to show up together in a line. Other times, a thread can be a very big waste of time that exists merely for the person to let you know that they're smart.

On a slightly more polite level, this will be a useful feature for some users, but it also does open the door to giant piles of harassment, and not just by the service's notorious racists with inexplicable anime avatars.

Now, Twitter is changing the process so that when you plan to thread, you can do so in a separate way that cuts out all those middlemen trying to respond before you're done. The feature will roll out via an app update. That means you can compose a tweetstorm on Twitter itself and get it all set to go before publishing the whole thing simultaneously with a new "tweet all" button. In the coming weeks, users will notice a plus button in the tweet composer.

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. This Add another Tweet feature is available for both Twitter mobile app as well as the desktop version.

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

Users will also be able to update their threads later on by clicking on a tweet and pressing "add another tweet". Hopefully, not too many people respond before you're done responding, thereby muddying the waters and making your thread more hard to track.
