Twitter launches new threads feature to make posting tweetstorms easier

An "add another tweet" button is being added to the Twitter application, along with a "show this thread" label that can be clicked to see posts woven together by authors. To rectify the oversight, the company codified tweetstorms on Tuesday with Threads, a new messaging feature.
