A user discovered the hidden, experimental ‘tweetstorm’ feature in Twitter’s Android app
Twitter is reportedly testing the feature that will simplify the way users post ’tweetstorms’
Tweetstorms are a series of related tweets posted by a user in quick succession
CALIFORNIA, U.S. - A user is said to have chanced upon a hidden, experimental "tweetstorm" feature in Twitter's Android app that is said to simplify the process.
The revelation of the ‘tweetstorm’ feature that Twitter is testing, which allows users to post a series of related tweets in quick succession, is said to simplify the process in which users post tweets in succession.
An Engadget report noted, “Instead of posting tweets one at a time and replying to them in sequence, you compose everything behind the scenes and share it all at once.”
The feature also the message to be broken into distinct tweets and then tweet them all at once.
While Twitter has not commented on the feature or when it would be made available for the public, the micro-blogging site recently lifted the 140-character limit for its 328 million-plus users to send direct messages.
Twitter, which is largely a public experience, only allowed direct messages to have private conversations about the memes and news that unfold on the microblogging site.
Last year, the company said that it would stop counting photos, videos and GIF animations toward the 140-character limit.
If the tweetstorm feature is eventually introduced, experts believe it will support pinning of tweets that the platform already offers.
Currently, users who want to create a string of connected tweets have to manually reply to a previously published tweet, which is largely seen as a time-consuming process.
