Twitter is experimenting with a feature that allows composing tweetstorms easily. The feature has been built but not rolled out yet for the users. In case, Twitter decides to roll out the same, the users will be given an option to compose their tweets in advance to publish them simultaneously.
Twitter’s long threads have become common in the past few years as users can only use 140 characters to summarize the content. In case, they wish to express more, they need to compose a series of tweets called “threads”. However, the unlaunched twitter feature will make it easy to compose the tweet storms and launch them separately as a single thread. Here is a screenshot of the new feature in action.
There is no official confirmation from the social networking service provider about the feature and it is still not clear if the feature will be rolled out in near future. However, the feature is in testing only for the Android users. This simple thread of tweets is users rescue to voice their opinion on a single topic that will appear as threaded comment on user’s screen.
With this new feature, Twitter will do away with the character limit. The 140 character limit is a barrier to a number of users who are not accustomed to the customizing their threads as per the present tradition. The new feature will help such users to get onboard and express their feeling in threaded tweets aka through tweetstorms.

However, Twitter refused to comment on any of the proceedings for the tweetstorm feature. Whatever be the development, it will be interesting to see the roll out of an exceptional Twitter feature that will let the users compose their thoughts in a single tweet thread.
