Twitter confirms it's testing a dedicated tweetstorm feature

As if upping its character limit to 280 wasn’t enough, Twitter is examining a dedicated feature to make it easier intended for users to tweetstorm.

The test first surfaced in Sept, but Twitter is now confirming the particular experiment, which is currently live simply to people who are part of Twitter’s Experiments Program.  

The latest version of the function, which was spotted by Android Law enforcement, allows users to add multiple twitter posts to a single thread using a brand new “+” icon in the tweet the composer. It’s not clear if it limits you to definitely a specific number of tweets, though it seems each one has the same 280-character restrict as the rest of Twitter.

Though tweetstorms have long been commonplace amongst power users for years, Twitter never ever made the process particularly intuitive for brand spanking new users, despite their popularity. (Though Twitter has made some tweaks through the years to make long threads easier to stick to. )

But making it an official area of the app would be yet another sign Tweets is ready to help users find methods to use its platform to share ideas in a more “longform” way than the conventional 140 character limit, which alone was recently doubled.

Of course, Twitter as with every other main tech company, regularly tests brand new features and not all of them make their way towards the public. But given the popularity associated with tweetstorms as they already exist, plus Twitter’s recent commitment to widening tweets, it seems that the feature definitely has a good shot at getting official.
