Twitter Prepares Tweetstorm Feature

Twitter has an unlaunched tweetstorm feature Tweetstorm: Twitter Developing Feature To Automatically Post Threaded Tweets

But now, Twitter is testing a new feature called tweetstorms which allows user to compose a lengthy tweet, the feature will divide this tweet into 140 character's tweets and shows as a thread. Similarly, there isn't any confirmation about the launch of the new feature.

But if it does, you'll no longer have to worry about your Twitter rant being interrupted before you've finished.

Being politically correct is overrated says Kangana Ranaut
The veteran actress recently said that Kangana was lying about everything that she said in her interview about Aditya and her. Earlier, Farah had spoken about the "woman card" when asked about the issue. "Otherwise, I am the last person to react".

The feature was first pointed out by Matt Navara, director of Social Media at The Next Web, on Twitter. Twitter has officially declined on such feature. An early version of the feature, which is not being tested in public, was discovered in the Android Twitter app by a Twitter user calling himself Davesh Logendran, according to the report.

Popularized by tech investor Marc Andreessen, coined by fellow VC Chris Dixon, and vilified by BuzzFeed's Charlie Warzel, tweetstorms have been a Twitter power user trick since at least 2014. On the other hand with the Tweetstorm function, in-built Twitter users no more have to rely on third-party apps or manually segregating their longer tweets into a series. It takes more time and people find it very messy. However, composing multiple tweets, one right after the other, can be time consuming, and they can be easy to mess up. Either way, the Twitter sorting algorithm deemphasizes content with weak feedback, so if tweetstormers are boring their audience, they'll pay the price in visibility. It's no secret that Twitter has been struggling with growth from last few years and unlike Facebook, the microblogging site attracts only a certain niche of users. The company earlier also got involved in an internal discussion raising the limit to 10,000 characters, but that didn't happen and company chose to stick to old 140-character limit. Launching a tweetstorm button could remove one more confusing block from the wall dividing Twitter from the mainstream.
