Twitter continues shift to blog style with Threads feature

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. Don't forget to update your Twitter app to take advantage of this new feature. Other times, a thread can be a huge waste of time that exists merely for the person to let you know that they're smart.

In recent years, prolific tweeters have thumbed their noses at the 140-character limit (now a 280-character limit) by creating "threads" comprising a series of replies to their own tweet.

You know those times when the space of a single tweet isn't enough?

Backlash, protests continue over Trump's Jerusalem decision
The protesters carried flags and banners expressing solidarity with Palestinians, according to Agence France-Presse . Some 450,000 Palestinian refugees are now living in camps across Lebanon, according to government data.

In a blog post, Twitter's Product Manager Sasank Reddy explained: "Hundreds of thousands of threads are Tweeted every day". So users did what came naturally and linked dozens of tweets together by replying to themselves over and over. You write the first tweet, then a response to that tweet, then another response, and so on until you're done. A tweet now has a plus icon on the bottom right corner, that can be tapped or clicked to add another tweet to a thread. Imagine some teen composing a twenty-tweet long thread about how much they hate somebody and dumping it on the internet. You can continue adding more Tweets to your published thread at any time with the new "Add another Tweet" button.

Twitter said on Tuesday it would add a pair of buttons that will allow users to more easily see and add new tweets to existing ones on the same topic. You can also view threads with the obviously named "Show This Thread" button.

"A few weeks ago, we expanded our character count to make it easier for people to fit what they're thinking into a Tweet". 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. "That's where this update to threads comes in!"
