This guide will help you make a thread on Twitter so you can tweet more than 280 characters or a series of tweets at a time. If you are tweeting various news updates, it is best to create a discussion thread so that your subscribers can see all of the tweets from one place. The best thing is that you can create a survey, add images and do more in the thread.
Previously, 140 was the character limit, which was increased to 280 characters a few years ago. Whether you’re using the official Twitter app or a third-party Twitter client, sometimes even the 280-character limit seems tiny when users need to post large text. To address the character limit issues, Twitter has included a “thread” that helps users post a series of tweets at once.
