The Many Functions of Twitter Threads
There are, of course, other features related to this option. For instance, you can also view threads through your homepage as well as your profile time lines.
- The way threads appear on your homepage/time line depends on the number of tweets per thread. So if a user you follow on Twitter has 2 to 3 tweets in one of their threads, that thread will appear on your time line connected by a line, distinguishing them as one whole set of tweets. But if someone you follow has 4 or more tweets in one of their threads then those tweets will be shortened with an option to Show this thread. If you wish to view that whole thread, simply click this message to expand that thread.
- Threads on your profile timeline will appear as separate Tweets. Talking about the order, they will appear in reverse chronological order. Again, if a tweet is a part of your thread then you will see the option to Show this thread to view that entire thread.
- If you direct message someone on Twitter one of the tweets from a thread, the Show this thread option will also be visible to that recipient to view that whole thread.
On the other hand, if a user mentions you in their thread, you will receive the notification for that through your Notifications timeline/a push notification/an email notifications (depending on your settings).
Last but not the least, when you Retweet or Retweet with Comments a tweet which is part of a longer thread, the Retweet or Retweet with Comments will include the Show this thread option to other users to view the whole thread. That’s all you need to know on how to make a thread on twitter.
