Twitter has launched an easier way to connect tweets together in threads, with a new plus button in the composer.
The news comes just weeks after Twitter expanded its character count to make it easier for people to fit what they’re thinking into a tweet.
The update to threads is an extension of this, allowing users to serialise a longer story or thought, or provide ongoing commentary as an event or topic unfolds.

Users can continue adding more tweets to their published thread at any time with the new ‘Add another tweet’ button. Twitter is also making it simpler to spot a thread with the addition of a ‘Show this thread’ label.
The updates will be rolled out in the coming weeks.
