Most of the users are using tweetstorm way of posting tweets for a long time now and the character limitation made it much of a need for the users. However, Twitter doubled the 140 character limit recently but that doesn't hamper the popularity of tweetstorm. The company has been testing the feature since last month and today, finally launching it for both iOS and Android users. Use of the tweetstorm depends on the user’s need, some use to lay down the factual point of a news, telling stories with suspense, joke or it could be just expressing a bigger thought. Whatever the need is, now users can shoot their tweets in more managed and planned way with Twitter ‘threads’ feature.

The Twitter  ‘threads’ feature is quite easy to use, you will find a ‘+’ sign in the tab of attachments while tweeting normally. After writing your tweet you just need to tap the plus icon and you will get space for series of tweets. You can fill up space with your tweet restricted to 280 characters and get ready your series of the tweet. While tweeting, you can also add media, GIFs, images and more in each tweet in the thread. Once you are done with one tweet you can move to the next space for another tweet.
