Twitter finally has an official thread tool for those serial tweets

13 December 2017

Twitter's usually ahead of the curve when it comes to social media trends. To stitch a thread, one needed to continue replying to the newest Tweet in their thread until the narrative is complete. Third-party Twitter clients, like Tweetbot, will have to be updated to support Threads.

Twitter has announced a new feature to make it easier for people to post and read "threads".

Twitter has indicated that the threading feature will be rolling out on Android, iOS and the web for all users over the course of the next few weeks. Sometimes it will be a longer essay sometimes marked by numbers, like 1/10, and other times it might resemble more of a bullet list, with each tweet in the thread another bullet point. Additionally, it's now simpler to spot a thread - we've added an obvious "Show this thread" label. The composer now includes a "plus" button that lets you tack on additional tweets, with whatever you've written before still visible to help guide your train of thought. This new feature is dedicated to making it easier for people to spot a thread amidst the hundreds of Tweets - which is often a hard task.
