- Once you have completed the character limit, tap on the ‘+plus’ icon.
- Continue writing and repeat the process once you have reached the limit.
- Tap on Tweet all to publish it.
If you still want to add more later, tap on the X icon at the top left, then tap on save in the dialog box. To delete a tweet from the thread, tap on the X icon on the right of the tweet.
How To View Saved Threads Draft On Twitter?

Saving the tweet threads draft is not allowed on the desktop version of Twitter. So if you discard your thread, you will need to create a new one.
If you reply to your own tweet imidideatly after publishing, it can be considered as a thread. Since the reply feature binds your tweets together one after the other. In other words it is also known as tweetstrom.
How To View A Thread On Your Timeline?
On your timeline, a Twitter thread from a person you follow with two or three tweets will often be denoted as a collection of tweets connected by a line connecting them. When a thread contains four or more tweets, the tweets will be shortened, and an option to ‘Show this thread‘ will appear. To view the whole discussion, click or tap this message.
Your profile timeline will display the Twitter thread in reverse chronological order as separate tweets. In addition, each tweet in your thread will have the option to show this thread so that you may see the entire series of tweets.
What’s More About Twitter Threads?
Direct Messages: The receiver will see the Show this thread option in the message when you share a single tweet from a topic through Direct Message.
Notifications: Depending on your preferences, you may get alerts through your Notifications timeline. You will receive a banner notification on your mobile screen or an email if you are mentioned in the thread.
That’s everything you need to know about how to make a thread on Twitter. Next, you can use your desktop or mobile to create a line of tweets. Once you are done, click or tap on the tweet to publish them together.
To sum up, to make a Twitter thread, all you have to do is tap the plus icon once you have reached the character limit while writing a tweet.
