This guide will help you to make a thread on Twitter so that you can tweet more than 280 characters or a series of tweets at once. If you are tweeting various news updates, it is better to make a thread so that your followers can see all the tweets from one place. The best thing is that you can create a poll, add images, and do more in the thread.
Previously, 140 was the character limit, which was increased to 280 characters a couple of years back. Whether you use the official Twitter app or a third-party Twitter client, at times, even the 280-character limit seems tiny when users need to publish a broad text. To address the problems with the character limit, Twitter included “thread” that helps users to post a series of tweets at once.
