Nonetheless, the tweetstorm has become a staple of the platform, allowing people to make the sort of nuanced arguments that Twitter's famous character limit would otherwise seem to preclude.

The move comes just a month after Twitter rattled the twitterverse by doubling the limit for tweets in most languages to 280 characters, in a bid to draw in more users and boost engagement. In simple words, this feature will let you organize multi-tweet threads. "Now, hundreds of thousands of threads are tweeted every day". The company said this can be tricky for some to create, and it can be tough to discover all the tweets in one thread. You can continue adding more Tweets to your published thread at any time with the new "Add another Tweet" button.

You've seen those series of tweets from celebrities or friends, when 140, oooppps we mean 280, characters are not enough. This created a long, and sometimes hard to follow, train of thought. That said, Twitter, which has absolutely no other pressing issues on its site at the moment, has chose to cater to tweetstormers with a new update. While people wait for the tool to launch on their devices, Twitter has revealed how the feature will work. Just click on the Add Another Tweet button.

To continue the thread, users can tap on the plus sign on the bottom-right of the screen above the keyboard. Imagine some teen composing a twenty-tweet long thread about how much they hate somebody and dumping it on the internet.


If you've already published a thread, you can add a P.S. with the "Add another Tweet" button.

It will also be easier to read threads from other users as well.

People who want to use the new thread feature should make sure their app is up to date. Or they'd say outright the tweet was part of an incoming thread. The platform introduced a circle logo that indicates when a tweet's limit has been reached.
