Twitter threads are not something new if you are a regular user of the microblogging app. What is a Twitter thread? A thread is a series of tweets stringed together to tell a particular story, share a train of thoughts or create a certain pattern.
Threads are now popular more than ever with people sharing a particular story or narrating an experience they want their Twitter audience to see. Hundreds of threads are created daily and the feature has become a very effective way of sharing a train of thoughts or an experience by Twitter users. Twitter not long ago increased its tweet character limit to 280 for everyone from the 140 characters which has always been available on the app, threads created now are shorter because of the longer character limit which allows more text as opposed to when the app was 140 characters.
How to Create Twitter Threads with the New Update
As described on the official Twitter blog, it is now easier to create Twitter threads. Instead of tweeting many times, users will now be able to compose a thread at once with the addition of a new “Add another Tweet” plus (+) button icon.

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.
Updates will be rolling out in the coming weeks to users on IOS, Android and Twitter.com users. To get the new feature, all you have to is update your Twitter app to the latest version from Google Play on Android or Apple store for IOS.
