It is the latest instance of the social network altering or adding a feature after reviewing feedback to keep its more than 300 million monthly active users engaged.
The need for tweetstorms became more pressing over the years, as users continually bumped up against Twitter's 140 character count limit - a restriction Twitter recently doubled, ahead of today's launch. When you're ready to post, you tap the "Tweet all" button at the top to send the stream to Twitter. The name plays off the internal company vernacular of "threading" as the name for multiple tweets in a stream-of-consciousness post.
But to stitch these tweets together, users had to reply to their original tweet to start the thread.
On a slightly more polite level, this will be a useful feature for some users, but it also does open the door to giant piles of harassment, and not just by the service's notorious racists with inexplicable anime avatars.
Twitter has now introduced an easy way for users to thread tweets together.

According to a new Variety article, what will change are the people in charge of those films and the people performing in them. With Aquaman next year and both Shazam and Wonder Woman 2 coming next year, there are more DC films coming.
The company announced the changes at 1 p.m. on Tuesday in a blog post titled, "Nice Threads". According to a Twitter spokesperson, the limit on the number of tweets you can add via the + button before you publish is 25.
The updates will be rolled out across iOS, Android, and Twitter.com over the next few weeks.
Now that's no longer necessary, as they can just tweet the whole thing at once.
Users on Twitter have long used threads to communicate in long form, since tweets are limited to 280 characters.
In addition, another handy feature allows you to go back and update a thread by adding new tweets after it already posted. This new feature is dedicated to making it easier for people to spot a thread amidst the hundreds of Tweets - which is often a hard task.
