That's why we're thrilled to share that we're making it simpler to thread Tweets together, and to find threads, so it's easier to express yourself on Twitter and stay informed.

Twitter announced Tuesday that it will add official support for Twitter threads, something users have been doing on their own for some time.

Many replies to Dorsey's post called on Twitter to focus on dealing with extremists, trolls, and "bots" abusing the service instead of packaging tweets together.

Just last month, Twitter doubled the character limit for tweets from 140 to 280, in a major shift. Some users have already got the feature. And even after you post it, you can continue adding tweets in case you still have some thoughts on your mind or if it's an ongoing live tweet thing.

He specifically helped out with preparations for the iHeartRadio Jingle Ball Concert. When Corden paused to visit the toilet, Swift urged her dancers: "Save yourselves".

Twitter posts about a topic, typically fired off in rapid succession by someone intent on writing more than allowed by the character limit, have been referred to as "tweetstorms". Threaded tweets now have a "Show this thread" label, which makes it easier for users to spot threaded tweets on the microblogging platform.

Tweets not working for you?

. If someone has made a threaded tweet, you can click or tap on a new option called "Show this thread" to see everything at once.

"This will make some of the thoughtful longform posts on Twitter more accessible to a broader range of people".

The new threading tool will roll out to all users in the "coming weeks", Reddy said. The firm has made moves to increase transparency around advertising, clarify its rules about what violates its terms and conditions and is changing its criteria for verifying users.
