You can add to your published thread by tapping the "Add another Tweet" button. This method was invented by users as a way to link all the tweets within a topic together and make it easy to read them all in one place.

The move comes just a month after Twitter rattled the twitterverse by doubling the limit for tweets in most languages to 280 characters, in a bid to draw in more users and boost engagement. A tweet now has a plus icon on the bottom right corner, that can be tapped or clicked to add another tweet to a thread.

A related change makes it easier to add to an already published tweet or thread, which used to require hitting the "reply" button. Twitter users have come up with their own creative ways to create their own "tweetstorms", but soon it should be much easier.

Twitter says threads will begin rolling out today to everyone on iOS, Android and the web, to reach the full user base over a few weeks' time. Be sure to update your app. 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. "Now, hundreds of thousands of threads are tweeted every day". Whether it's a tirade about an issue or a amusing or touching story that they're telling, Twitter threads are a good way to express your thoughts or tell a story. Third-party Twitter clients, like Tweetbot, will have to be updated to support Threads. The platform announced a new feature that will allow users to create threads on the platform without having to reply to themselves.

Now, Twitter is changing the process so that when you plan to thread, you can do so in a separate way that cuts out all those middlemen trying to respond before you're done.
