Brace Yourself, Twitter’s Tweetstorm Feature Is Here

This is just to say that even though Twitter rolled out a feature making it easier to thread your tweets doesn’t mean you should use it. After being rumored earlier this fall, the company announced today that all users are going to be able to draft their tweet threads and then, with a single button click, tweet the whole thread. Rather than the usual move of typing each tweet and tweeting each tweet one after the other until you’ve made whatever point you were trying to make. Or until you realize that you’re not actually going to be able to make said point and are just hanging yourself with 140-character — er, 280-character — missives in front of all of your pals online.

It’s possible that this new feature will mean that people will fully flesh out their thoughts in a smart and concise manner, taking the time to edit them and make some sort of productive point over the course of their 32-tweet-long thread. Maybe this new feature will be a good and dialogue-promoting addition to the platform. Oh … wait. This is Twitter we’re talking about. Never mind.
