Twitter plans to allow users to publish several tweets at once.
The new feature introduced Tuesday, will allow users to more easily create “tweetstorms,” or longer messages published in multiple tweets, Recode reported.
Twitter will automatically thread the messages together and publish them in unison. The news comes shortly after Twitter expanded its character limit from 140 to 280.
Although tweetstorms have been around for years, they are difficult to create, where users to publish tweets one by one.
Now Twitter will automatically wire longer posts together and publish them in unison. More and more threads are indicated with a “show this thread” label so that people know that there is more to read.
Twitter is testing the feature for months before making the announcement. The company has claimed that longer – unlike the shorter messages are often better, Recode reported. If the characters count was doubled in the last month, Twitter claimed that longer messages resulted in more involvement.
The company wrote in its blog that the new update will be live for the users of iOS, Android, and Twitter.com in the coming weeks.
