Both on Web and App version, Twitter has added a plus button in the composer, so that you can connect your thoughts and publish threaded tweets at the same time. You can add to your published thread by tapping the “Add another Tweet” button. For users viewing threads, Twitter has added a “Show this thread” label to expand the thread of tweets.
Past months, Twitter launched 280-character tweets for all its 330 million users, up from the past limit of 140 characters. Recent data from social media analysis firm SocialFlow claims tweets with more than 140 characters are retweeted 26.52 times on average compared with 13.71 times for tweets of 140 characters and below.
In addition to 280-character limits, the new tweet threads will allow users to string more information together on Twitter than before. In the past, users may have turned to other social media platforms like Facebook to post longer information.
“A few weeks ago, we expanded our character count to make it easier for people to fit what they’re thinking into a tweet,” Twitter wrote in a blog post. “But we know people also may want to serialize a longer story or thought, or provide ongoing commentary on an event or topic. That’s where this update to threads comes in!”
The Thread updates is going to be available for everyone on Android, iOS and Twitter.com in the coming weeks, according to Twitter in their post
