Good morning Product Hunt, I built a new website and it is called Thread Hunt. Here's why: 🤔 Problem So I love to follow a good Twitter thread from the beginning until the end 🍿. But your know how your timeline is exhausted quickly, so you have no more threads to read. So where can you find the all newest threads? There are various options to read and write threads or tweetstorms, but none to actually find the threads! 🔥 Solution I built a web app so you can add all the hottest threads you find, and share them with other thread addicts. It works very much like 😻Product Hunt, but for Twitter threads. So I decided to call it Thread Hunt 👇Let me know what you think below

@wimgz seems a lot like the Thread Reader App? https://ThreadReaderApp.com
WilliamMaker@wimgz
@chrismessina Not really. Thread reader displays Twitter threads with a different format, but doesn't help you discover new threads. Thread hunt is the opposite: Only discovery, them back to twitter to read all the content. Maybe I could make that clearer on the site?
Chris Messina@chrismessina · Product designer & entrepreneur
@wimgz is it voting over trending that differentiates Thread Hunt? Thread Reader does offer some discovery.
WilliamMaker@wimgz
@chrismessina Yes, and the highlights change everyday :) What criteria are you looking for when searching for threads?
Chris Messina@chrismessina · Product designer & entrepreneur
@wimgz well, I normally don't search for threads... it's like, I encounter them on Twitter. The Thread Reader approach is nice because it provides utility and then leads to more discovery. How do you imagine people will incorporate Thread Hunt into their regular content consumption habits?

This application will be able to: Read Tweets from your timeline. See who you follow, and follow new people. Update your profile. Post Tweets for you. See your email address. Is this really necessary? 😕
WilliamMaker@wimgz
@imromains Yeah you're right I could change it because it's read only, all others are not used

@wimgz Just seen the change, thanks man! Joining now!
WilliamMaker@wimgz
@imromains Cool thanks :)

@wimgz it would be good to have a link to like ThreadReader to unroll the thread if you want to read in page. Of course it has its own trending section, but...battle of the algorithms maybe :)
WilliamMaker@wimgz
@rgoodwin I will think about it :) I designed it to scratch my own itch at first and I'm happy with how threads look on Twitter. That's why I didn't include a full unroll of the threads so far. But I might if it makes sense for a lot of users...

What a neat idea! Definitely going to check this every once in a while.
