Brace Yourselves: The Tweetstorms Are Coming

Twitter is officially introducing threaded tweets

Threaded tweets are rolling out in the coming weeks

Twitter had been fiddling with ways to allow users to send strings of connected tweets, and now the new feature is official.

Senior product manager Sasank Reddy announced in a blog post that tweetstorms are in the forecast for iOS, Android and Twitter’s mobile site “in the coming weeks,” adding that the social network refers to the process of stringing tweets together as threading.

Reddy wrote, “We’ve made it easy to create a thread by adding a plus button in the composer, so you can connect your thoughts and publish your threaded tweets all at the same time. You can continue adding more tweets to your published thread at any time with the new ‘Add another tweet” button. Additionally, it’s now simpler to spot a thread—we’ve added an obvious ‘Show this thread’ label.

Currently, the only way for Twitter users to tweetstorm is to keep manually replying to their previous tweets.
