Twitter has confirmed it is testing its new ‘Tweetstorm’ feature, which will allow users to more easily create threads of connected tweets. Users will be able to write tweets one by one then click the ‘Tweet all’ button to post them as a tweetstorm thread. Twitter will then post them all together in the correct order. In the past, users have used multiple tweets with numbers at the end such as 1/3 to indicate they are going to carry on the message in that tweet. The new tweet storm feature will benefit users who want to create threads of tweets without them getting lost or split up. Think this feature could be a good one for you? Read more here.
