Rather than commenting on your own tweets to form a thread, Twitter will now show a ‘+’ icon in the compose tweet window. Users will be able to write tweets as they normally do, and then click or tap on the new button to link a tweet to the new tweet thus creating a thread.
The functionality isn’t all that different, because the result is the same as it was before today’s update, which is really just about improving the process to make it easier for users to create threads. That’s what this new button has been designed to do, and that is all that’s being included in this update.
The new button will take a bit of getting used to, but it should save some time and reduce the hassle of having to comment on tweets. There seems to be no limit in place as to how many tweets can be chained together in a thread, but we could be wrong. To see the feature demonstrated, check out the animated GIF image below.
Twitter will be rolling out the update across all platforms including Android over the coming weeks. Let us know once you get it, down in the comment section below this post.
