Twitter has announced on December 12, 2017 that it has implemented a solution to directly create twitter threads through the composer.

Users can now continue adding more Tweets to a published thread at any time with the new “Add another Tweet” button. Additionally, the company announced, it’s now simpler to spot a thread with the implementation of a new, “obvious ‘Show this thread’ label.”

Twitter explained the move: “We have a history of studying how people use our service and then creating features to make what they’re doing easier. The Retweet, ‘@reply’, and hashtag are examples of this. A few years ago we noticed people creatively stitching Tweets together to share more information or tell a longer story. We saw this approach (which we call threading’) as an innovative way to present a train of thought, made up of connected but individual elements.Now, hundreds of thousands of threads are Tweeted every day! But this method of Tweeting, while effective and popular, can be tricky for some to create and it’s often tough to read or discover all the Tweets in a thread. That’s why we’re thrilled to share that we’re making it simpler to thread Tweets together, and to find threads, so it’s easier to express yourself on Twitter and stay informed.”

The company announced it is rolling out these updates to everyone on iOS, Android, and Twitter.com in the coming weeks.
