Twitter introduces a built-in Tweetstorm feature ⚑️

#2 Product of the DayDecember 12, 2017

Twitter launched it's own Tweetstorm feature! They made it easy to create a thread by adding a plus button in the composer, so you can connect your thoughts and publish your threaded Tweets all at the same time. πŸ₯

@rubencodes First step is editing individual tweets.
@rubencodes We ask for the ability to edit Tweets and Twitter instead give you a way to better make Tweetstorms
Great execution on the UX, @stammy and team. I'm curious what your overall goal is with this feature. E.g. to make it easier for people to tweetstorm? Encourage people to tweet more (that might not already be tweetstrorming)?

@stammy @rrhoover easier execution, better structure, likelier impeachment?
@rrhoover As an emerging and not prevalent behavior on the platform we wanted to first and foremost make them easier to read, then simplify the creation and make it less likely that folks will improperly thread/inadvertently branch. Nothing quite as painful as seeing a thread.. that was not threaded πŸ™ˆ
@rrhoover @stammy Any chance this feature will be made available via the API for third party clients?
So, what's the point of a character limit then?
@glstephen I think of the length limit like: Tweet ~= paragraph. Tweetstorm ~= blog post.
Well done, Twitter! This makes so much sense. Love it!
