A Twitter thread is a series of tweets that are linked to one another and published sequentially in a single string. Due to the 280-character limit, longer thoughts or ideas that can’t be expressed in a single tweet are shared in Twitter threads. Here are seven apps or ways you could save these threads for later reading.
Users can start a Twitter thread by writing their first tweet and then adding additional tweets by clicking the “add another tweet” button. A single string will be displayed and connected to the tweets in the thread. Tweetstorms, which are long threads of tweets, can also be written and published by users directly from their Twitter account or web browser using apps or tools.
