A few years ago we noticed people creatively stitching Tweets together to share more information or tell a longer story – like this. We saw this approach (which we call “threading”) as an innovative way to present a train of thought, made up of connected but individual elements. 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.
Twitter has added a plus button in the composer so you can publish your threaded tweets at the same time. You can also add Tweets to your published thread at any time with the new 'Add another Tweet' button. For those reading tweets, there's a new 'Show this thread' label.
The new threading features are rolling out to everyone on iOS, Android, and Twitter.com in the coming weeks. Be sure to update your app.
You can download Twitter from the App Store for free.
