Twitter is working on a new feature letting users draft strings of tweets, which can be sent out in one go.
Forecast calls for tweetstorms
Though not officially announced or being actively tested, an Android app developer recently unearthed coding which pertains to the new feature allowing user to create connected tweets.
In an ongoing effort to refine user experience and functionality, it's not uncommon for Twitter to quietly experiment with new features.
The new feature would potentially allow users to draft multiple tweets in the same template to be automatically sent as a threaded conversation.
Breaking the 140 character ceiling
Tweetstorming allows users to share longer streams of thought in one place without falling victim to the character limit.
In the past, Twitter had considered expanding its character limit to as much as 10,000 characters but decided against as it removed the need to keep tweets concise.
Whether or not the new feature sees the light of day is still up in the air, but with larger conversations being sought, this may be a proper workaround without raising the character cap.
There has been no official word from Twitter just yet but perhaps they’re planning a storm of their own.
