A Twitter thread is a set of tweets from the same user, numbered and linked in sequence. It's a great way to expand on a topic that cannot be written in up to 280 characters. Here's how to create a Twitter thread.

Why create a Twitter thread?

Twitter threads are an official and evolved form of tweetstorms. Tweet storms are usually a long string of numbered tweets that are sent in response to the original tweet.

But the definition of a tweet storm is quite broad. Even if a user tweeted several times in a row, without replying to the original tweet, it's still considered a tweet storm.

A Twitter thread can be used in several ways. The first way it can be used is to explain a complex topic. Brands use Twitter threads to talk about new features in an update.

One of the best-use cases for Twitter threads (and something most related to the Twitter audience) is used in telling stories.

You can split a story or experience into 280 character bugs and create a Twitter thread. You get a lot more grip and an audience. For many people, this is a better alternative to publishing a blog, especially if this is not an ordinary affair.

If you're planning to tweet, it's best to use Twitter's built-in functionality to create multiple tweets.

Creating a Twitter Thread

The Twitter Threads feature is integrated into all Twitter products. You can find it on the Twitter website the iPhone and iPad app and the Android app.

To start, open Twitter on the platform of your choice and select the Tweet button. If you use the website, you will find it in the left sidebar. If you're using a mobile app, it's in the bottom-right corner of the timeline.

 Tap the Tweet button to start the twitter thread or tweetstorm

Now, the familiar tweet compose interface appears.

Start writing your first tweet. If you're creating a tweetstorm or a long thread, it's best to number your tweets (1/5 or just 1, 2, and so on) so people know where they are in the thread.

After writing your first tweet, don't press the "Tweet" button yet. Tap the plus (+) button instead.

You will now see a new empty tweet box. Type your second tweet here and tap the plus (+) button again to add another tweet to the thread.

 Tap Add Another Tweet Box

Repeat this process until you have written all the tweets (don't worry, you can also add more tweets to the thread later). You can swipe up or scroll and tap a previous tweet to edit it.

When you're done, tap or click the "Tweet All" button.

 Tap Tweet all to publish the twitter thread or tweetstorm

Your Twitter thread will be published.

Starting a Twitter thread for a published tweet

You can go back at any time and add additional tweets to a Twitter thread, but only through the mobile app for iPhone, iPad or Android. Just navigate to a published Twitter thread and go to the last tweet. Here, tap the & # 39; Add another tweet & # 39; button.

There is also a shortcut to quickly respond to your most recently published tweet. This feature gives you more control and freedom in creating your Twitter thread.

To do this quickly, tap the Tweet button on the Twitter home screen or app. When you see the empty compose box, just swipe down. This will show you your most recent tweet.
