Twitter is about to make creating threads a lot easier

The company is also responding to users' concerns that by making tweetstorms more accessible to people, the Twitter timeline will become cluttered with longer posts that slow down users' ability to quickly scan through posts, the way you can now. The platform announced a new feature that will allow users to create threads on the platform without having to reply to themselves. The composer now includes a "plus" button that lets you tack on additional tweets, with whatever you've written before still visible to help guide your train of thought. For many, it's been a useful workaround to get past what was then the company's 140-character limit on each tweet, which only changed to 280 characters last month. Twitter now brings a new feature called the "Add another Tweet" - which as the name suggests will allow you to stitch together a Twitter thread in one single tweet. Twitter is now doing away with that awkward step by adding a special button.

Threads are a popular way of expressing thoughts and telling stories too long for even the new 280 character limit to contain.

The updates will be rolled out across iOS, Android, and over the next few weeks. While people wait for the tool to launch on their devices, Twitter has revealed how the feature will work. You can actually finish writing all of your tweets first, before deciding to publish it all at once.

To continue the thread, users can tap on the plus sign on the bottom-right of the screen above the keyboard. Now it has added a previously dubbed "tweetstorm" feature, which is officially called Threads.

Now that's no longer necessary, as they can just tweet the whole thing at once. You can continue adding more Tweets to your published thread at any time with the new "Add another Tweet" button.

Users will also be able to update their threads later on by clicking on a tweet and pressing "add another tweet".

People who want to use the new thread feature should make sure their app is up to date.
