How to Make a Thread on Twitter?

Publishing a tweet is the most efficient method to start/make a thread on Twitter. Once you do, you need to reply to your own tweet. You may ask how and it’s quite simple; reply the way you comment on other users’ tweets.

Repeat the process until you’ve provided your audience with all the information.

In the first instance, it sounds very simple and easy. But there exists quite a big issue here. That is, if you or your brand has a huge following, there are high chances you’ll get disturbed.

You won’t be able to complete your thread. Someone from your audience is likely to reply to your tweet just the way you’re doing it.

Trust us that can cause a lot of confusion among your audience. A user may ask a question which you were going to answer anyway but didn’t yet get the chance to.

In order to avoid all that from happening, make use of the built-in feature of Twitter for threads. If you use this feature, you can publish the entire thread at the same time.

You may avail of the built-in thread feature from the app or by using a browser. Besides, if you wish more users liked your tweets on Twitter, visit our website.

Step 7: Follow the same process of writing your tweets and clicking/tapping on the + until you’ve finished.
