How to properly thread tweets for your tweetstorms

· 13 December 2017

– Twitter now officially lets users string tweets together

(Pocket-lint) – Twitter has launched a new feature: the ability to thread tweets .

To understand this feature, you have to go back to 2014, when Twitter began letting users link replies to originating tweets . It essentially allowed them to quickly post a barrage of tweets, and this resulted in the birth of the “ tweetstorm .”

Since 2016, tweetstorms have become hugely popular, even helping shape current events and discussions about them . But the ability to thread tweets has, thus far, been a tedious, manual task. In the past, you’d thread tweets together by sending a tweet, then clicking “reply” on that tweet, and deleting your username and sending another tweet.

You could include a number in each tweet to indicate the order the tweets were supposed to be read, or you could just publish a series of tweets and leave it up to other users to discover their proper order. Clearly, the need for an official thread feature was needed. Now, Twitter has admitted it knows people want to sometimes post a longer thought.

So, it’s finally decided to release an update that officially introduces serialized tweets, also known as tweetstorms or threading. Here’s everything you need to know about how it works.

How to thread your tweets together

What is a tweetstorm?

If you user does a tweetstorm, he or she simply threads a series of tweets – or posts a barrage of related tweets – in quick succession.

How do you thread tweets?

To conduct a tweetstorm, or create a thread, using the new feature on Twitter, start by composing a tweet. You need to type your first tweet and then hit the new plus button in the lower right-hand corner of the composer. That’ll bring up a new field within the composer so that you can get another 280 characters to continue expressing yourself.

Do this as many times as you want until your thought, or thread, is finished, and then hit “tweet.” The entire series of tweets will publish all at once, in the order that you typed them. In other words, you just published a tweetstorm. If you want to continue updating a thread at a later point, simply open it and tap “add another tweet”. That’s it.

Can you thread tweets from mobile or desktop?

Twitter is rolling out this update to all users of its iOS and Android apps and the web. It will arrive for everyone in the coming weeks.

When you have a lot to say a Twitter thread is the way to goHow to properly thread tweets for your tweetstorms

A Twitter thread is a series of tweets posted on Twitter that are connected to one another and can be read as one continuous post.

Most threads are written by the same Twitter user and are used to elaborate on an idea or thought that can’t be expressed within a single tweet. For example, someone may create a Twitter thread so they can properly communicate everything they liked about an anime series.How to properly thread tweets for your tweetstorms

The phrase has also evolved to describe a tweet with a lot of replies by multiple users. For example, if numerous individuals begin replying to a tweet with funny meme images, and more users reply to those tweets with even more memes, the series of tweets can be described as a thread. Someone may say, “Check out this Twitter thread with all these hilarious memes.”

Are Twitter Threads and Tweetstorms the Same Thing?

Twitter threads and tweetstorms can be the same thing, but not always.

A tweetstorm is when someone posts numerous tweets in quick succession. If these tweets are replies to one another, they would also be called a thread since the reply function would link them together.

This isn’t always the case, though, and many tweetstorms simply consist of individual tweets with no connection to each other or any connecting context.How to properly thread tweets for your tweetstorms

The phrase “tweetstorm” can also be used to describe multiple Twitter users tweeting about the same topic, but this usage has become a bit old fashioned.

How to Create a Twitter Thread

The simplest way to create a Twitter thread is to publish a tweet, then reply directly to it the same way you would reply to a tweet written by someone else. After the second tweet is published, reply to it with a third tweet and continue until your thread is finished.

While easy to use, one big problem with this method is your followers can begin replying to your tweets as they’re published, before your entire thread is finished. This can cause some unintended miscommunication and confusion, as people may begin asking questions about something you intend to add to the thread, but haven’t had a chance to write yet.

One way to avoid such a situation is to use Twitter’s built-in thread feature, which lets you compose an entire Twitter thread of numerous tweets which can be published at once.How to properly thread tweets for your tweetstorms

This Twitter thread tool is built into the Twitter website and apps. Here’s how to use it.

The steps for creating a Twitter thread are the same for the Twitter apps and on the web.

Open the Twitter website or the official Twitter app on your iOS or Android device.

Tap the compose icon to begin a new tweet. It looks like a floating blue circle with a pen in it.

On the Twitter website, select the “What’s happening” box at the top of the home page.

Type your first tweet as usual.

Select the blue + icon in the lower-right corner.

How to properly thread tweets for your tweetstorms

The 280-character limit for tweets on Twitter is double what it used to be back in the day, but it’s still not enough to express in-depth thoughts, ideas, commentary, rants, blogs, stories, and the like. These tweetstorms, as they’re called, are the reason why Twitter created its threads feature.

With threads, you can quickly publish several tweets at once, all connected in a single stream, so that your followers can easily read your rapid tweetstorms from one place. It’s a great feature to discuss politics, vent out frustrations, tell personal stories, and dive into more nuanced topics.

Making a thread is easy on your iPhone or Android phone, whether you’re using the full app, web app, or Twitter Lite, and it works just like it did in December 2017 when it was first released. You can do all of the same things you can do in regular solo tweets, such as add pictures, links, videos, and GIFs, so you’re not limited in any way when creating a thread.

Create a Twitter Thread

Log in to Twitter on your smartphone, then tap on the new tweet button, which is the icon with the plus (+) sign and a quill pen. Write your initial tweet out and add any links or media you want. While anything pretty much goes in threads, the only exception is when taking a photo with your camera, so that won’t work here.

Once the initial tweet of your new thread is ready, tap the plus (+) sign above the keyboard on the right to add a second. Then, write out and add media to your second tweet in the thread. Continue doing this with as many tweets as needed.

Note: if you’re done writing tweets out but added another one with the plus button, you can hit the “X” button next to it to remove it. Also, you can go back and edit any prior tweet drafts before making it official.

When ready, hit the “Tweet all” button in the top right to publish your entire thread at the same time. You can then tap the pop-up alert stating the tweets were posted or manually navigate to the tweetstorm to see what it looks like.

A gray line will appear on the left side of your published thread connecting each tweet so that you can get a quick picture of the thread’s total length. When viewing a particular tweet in the thread, that tweet will gain focus in a bigger view, while the rest shrink, and the gray lines will adjust accordingly.

Add Additional Tweets to an Existing Thread

Just because your thread is published doesn’t mean you can’t keep adding to it. If you want to add a tweet, scroll down to the last tweet in the thread, and tap the “Add another Tweet” button. Like when you first created the thread, you can add multiple tweets at once using the plus (+) sign or fire off a single tweet. Hit either “Tweet” or “Tweet all” to publish the new content to your thread.

Delete a Twitter Thread

Say you don’t want your thread to exist anymore. You can delete it, but it won’t be as easy as just removing a single tweet. You can delete an individual tweet in a thread, but the rest of the thread will stay on Twitter. Even if you delete the first tweet in the thread, the rest of the tweets will remain.

If you want to delete an entire thread, you’ll have to wipe out every single tweet in the thread one by one. To do so, tap on the inverted triangle in the top right of a tweet in the thread. Select the “Delete Tweet” option on the action menu to remove the tweet. Continue doing this until every single tweet in the thread is gone.

Although your tweets and your thread may be deleted, comments and retweets with comments will remain on Twitter. Of course, they won’t be on your profile, but on Twitter in general. For retweets with comments, the content quoted will show as deleted.

    In 2016, after killing blogs dead, Twitter considered massively expanding its character limit —or, more precisely, allowing users to attach long blocks of text the way they can attach pictures or videos. This never came to pass, and Twitter users kept shoehorning essays into self-reply threads called tweetstorms.

    A good tweetstorm is more than an essay broken into sentences. It builds tweet by tweet, it communicates something simple, and each tweet works as an aphorism or a pull quote. Good tweetstorms are widely varied, while bad tweetstorms all look the same . Here’s how to write one without embarrassing yourself.

    Write what you know

    There are two ideal topics for a tweetstorm. The first is one where you have personal experience or years of education. For example, sexual assault counselor Mala Muñoz recently wrote that prank and predatory calls make it harder for sexual assault hotlines to work with male victims :

    Muñoz points out that while many straight cis men criticize society for overlooking male victims of sexual assault, they don’t show up to the hotline she works at; the actual work of helping victims (including straight cis men) is picked up by “women and femme folks.”

    In another tweetstorm, pseudonymous writer and advocate Your Fat Friend analyzed the dehumanizing effect of headless B-roll footage and stock photos , usually taken without consent and used by the media as cautionary tales:

    Twitter is great for spreading an emotion and communicating one simple idea, and that’s what these threads do. They’re not following a detailed plot, so they don’t get bogged down or oversimplify. They’re not theorizing, they’re sharing real lived experience. They’re starting a conversation, not trying to solve it. That’s the type of story that’s well-served by Twitter virality.

    The other good threads are about something silly or obscure. The stakes are low, the tone is casual or slyly affected, and there’s nothing to get mad at. They’re great for telling funny stories, like when game maker Cabel Sasser discovered a badass McDonald’s with a Nintendo 64 and a custom mural:

    In a follow-up thread, Sasser showed off the extensive theme park work of mural artist Wes Cook . The tweetstorm format is perfect for the escalating insanity of the McDonald’s and the treasure trail of Cook’s designs. That feeling of “wait, it gets better” can’t be delivered so effectively in an article or a blog post.

    Plan your story

    The canonically worst tweetstorm is Eric Garland’s massive “game theory” thread, a post-election rant by a “professional futurist” about how Russia did Edward Snowden, John McCain will save us from Trump, and “cappuccino-colored president” Obama secretly has everything under control. Garland used lolspeak, lulzspeak, and AOL cybersex speak. His thread was so widely mocked that for a week, “time for some game theory” was the funniest way to start or end a tweet .

    Garland told NPR that he “had zero plan” when he started his tweetstorm. That’s (hopefully) why he quit his “actor analysis” pattern after two tweets, and why the 127-tweet thread includes no actual game theory .

    Write your thread out in advance. Then check whether you delivered on the promise of your first tweets. Read it aloud; edit it thoroughly. Read it backwards. Trim it.

    Talk like a person

    While Garland’s dramatic introduction makes his thread even sillier, it’s not always a mistake. Plenty of the good threads above start with similar ado. Just consider whether you’re being ironically grand, or secretly sincere.

    Two style notes that apply to any tweets, stormed or not: Avoid words you don’t use in daily speech; “y’all” and “yo” sound awkward from a northern straight white person in a suit. And avoid old-timey internet speak like “LOLZ” and “because [noun].”

    Don’t talk about Russia

    Pundits and journalists like HuffPost’s Seth Abramson and former UK MP Louise Mensch have turned Russia conspiracy-theory tweetstorms into a genre . While these threads sometimes bump into real facts, they more typically careen into nonsense and unsubstantiated rumors. They feed on the Twitter audience’s desperation for an explanation, for some sign that the Trump administration will soon be neatly removed. They are the undeserving beneficiaries of Twitter virality, fake news in pill form. Don’t retweet them.

    Format correctly

    Numbering your tweets is optional. It feels a bit nerdy, but it’s helpful when Twitter inevitably breaks your thread with a design update. Don’t include your expected total tweet count. That’s corny, even as a joke.

    Don’t just fill the character limit on each tweet and break off in the middle of a sentence. You’re already twisting Twitter’s format, don’t break it. Otherwise you’re just admitting that you can’t write within constraints.

    A Twitter thread is a set of tweets by the same user, numbered and linked one after the other. It’s a great way to expand on a topic that can’t be written in 280 characters or less. Here’s how to make a Twitter thread.

    Why Make a Twitter Thread?

    Twitter threads are an official and evolved form of tweetstorms. Tweetstorms are usually a long series of numbered tweets that are sent out as replies to the original tweet.

    But the definition of a tweetstorm is quite loose. Even if a user tweets multiple times one after the other, without replying to the original tweet, it’s still considered a tweetstorm.

    A Twitter thread can be used in multiple ways. The first way it can be used is as an explainer for a complicated topic. Brands use Twitter threads to talk about new features in an update.

    1: Whats your least used technology product or gadget during the lockdown?

    I find that i only use my Apple Watch when I go for a walk on the terrace in the evening. Rest of the time it’s just sitting in the desk.

    One of the best-use cases for Twitter threads (and something that connects the most with the Twitter audience) is its use in storytelling.

    3: What’s a new or surprising technology habit that you’ve developed during the lockdown?

    I have gone back deep into RSS and Twitter. I’m trying new RSS apps and services (@feedbin via @prawnay).

    You can break a story or an experience down in 280 character nuggets and create a Twitter thread. You’re much more likely to gain traction and an audience. For a lot of people, this is a better alternative to publishing a blog, especially if this is not a regular affair.

    If you’re planning to create a tweetstorm, it’s now best to use Twitter’s built-in functionality for creating multiple tweets.

    How to Make a Twitter Thread

    The Twitter threads feature is integrated across all of Twitter products. You’ll find it on the Twitter website, iPhone and iPad app, and the Android app as well.

    To get started, open Twitter on the platform of your choice and select the Tweet button. If you’re using the website, you’ll find it in the left sidebar. If you’re using a mobile app, it will be in the bottom-right corner of the timeline.

    Now, the familiar tweet compose interface will appear.

    Start writing your first tweet. If you’re creating a tweetstorm or a long thread, it’s best to number your tweets (1/5, or just 1, 2, and so on) so that people know where they are in the thread.

    After writing your first tweet, don’t hit the “Tweet” button just yet. Instead, tap on the Plus (+) button.

    You’ll now see a new empty tweet box. Here, type out your second tweet and tap on the Plus (+) button again to add another tweet to the thread.

    How to properly thread tweets for your tweetstorms

    Repeat this process until you’ve written all the tweets (don’t worry, you can add more tweets to the thread later as well). You can swipe or scroll up and tap on a previous tweet to edit it.

    Once you’re done, tap or click on the “Tweet All” button.

    How to properly thread tweets for your tweetstorms

    Your Twitter thread will be published.

    How to Start a Twitter Thread for a Published Tweet

    You can go back and add additional tweets to a Twitter thread at any time, but only from the mobile app for iPhone, iPad, or Android. Just navigate to a published Twitter thread and go to the last tweet. Here, tap on the “Add Another Tweet” button.

    How to properly thread tweets for your tweetstorms

    This will take you to the Tweet compose box, linked to the previous tweets.

    There’s also a shortcut to quickly reply to your most recently published tweet. This feature gives you more control and freedom over creating your Twitter thread.

    Let’s say you don’t want to publish all tweets together. You can publish one tweet, come back after a while, and add one more (as you get more data or news).

    To do this quickly, tap on the Tweet button from the Twitter Home Screen or app. When you see the empty compose box, just swipe down. This will show you your most recent tweet.

    How to properly thread tweets for your tweetstorms

    If you want to link the tweet as a reply to your previous tweet, just tap on the “Continue Thread” button. You can also choose a different tweet to link to by tapping on the three-dot menu button.

    From here, you can select another of your recent tweets.

    To unlink the new tweet, you can tap on the “Remove” button.

    Once you’re done, tap on the “Tweet” button to publish the tweet.

    If you like publishing Twitter threads but don’t like reading them in the Twitter interface, try using the Thread Reader App to expand and convert Twitter threads into blog posts.

    New to Twitter? Here’s how you can bookmark Tweets to save them for later, hide Twitter replies, and even create Twitter lists for multiple topics and pin them to your timeline, making them easier to access.

    Twitter teme (ali tweetstorms), kjer nekdo objavlja vrsto povezanih Tweets eden za drugim, sedi na čudnem mestu: vsi trdijo, da jih sovražijo, vendar jih veliko ljudi objavi. Twitter je pred kratkim sprejel to funkcijo in jo vključil v platformo ter jo olajšal. Evo kako jih uporabljati.

    Opomba: Ko to pišem, je funkcija na voljo samo prek spletne aplikacije Twitter. To bo potekalo na Android in iOS v bližnji funkciji in bi moralo delovati skoraj enako.

    Ustvarjanje novega toka

    Pojdite na Twitter in začnite nov Tweet. Vnesite, kar želite, da vam pove prvo sporočilo, nato pa, ko boste pripravljeni dodati drugo cvrko, kliknite ikono »majhno plus«.

    How to properly thread tweets for your tweetstorms

    Zdaj imate na voljo še eno drugo okno Tweet, zato vtipkajte, kaj želite povedati, nato pa še enkrat kliknite gumb plus, če potrebujete več tvitov.

    How to properly thread tweets for your tweetstorms

    Nadaljujte na ta način, da boste dodali še veliko Tweetov, ki jih želite v svoji niti. Kot običajno lahko dodate slike, gifove in videoposnetke.

    How to properly thread tweets for your tweetstorms

    Ko ste pripravljeni, kliknite »Cvrkutaj vse«, da pošljete nit.

    Vaši spremljevalci bodo videli prvo Tweet iz niti (in morda še dva). Če želite videti celotno stvar, morajo klikniti povezavo »Pokaži to nit«.

    To preprečuje, da bi Twitter teme popolnoma prehitel ljudi.

    Dodajanje drugega tweeta v Thread

    Če kasneje želite na vašo nit dodati še en Tweet, ga odprite in nato na dnu tapnite možnost »Add Another Tweet«.

    How to properly thread tweets for your tweetstorms

    Vnesite karkoli želite povedati in kliknite gumb »Cvrkutati«.
