This is how you make long Twitter threads easier to read and share

If you spend a lot of time on Twitter, you will probably encounter a long Twitter thread. Instead of reading it on Twitter, use the Thread Reader App website and bot to create a web page for easy reading.

Tweetstorms are the new blog posts. Instead of writing a short blog post on Medium or their own website, many bloggers or brands choose to publish long Twitter threads instead. Twitter now makes it very easy to publish multiple tweets together as a thread, so this shouldn't be a surprise.

But when you're on the other side of the thread, the reading experience for a long Twitter thread is not as good. Not to mention, there is no easy way to share a Twitter thread with a friend who does not use Twitter (something that blogs have figured out decades ago).

The Thread Reader app solves both problems. The site, combined with its Twitter bot, helps you roll out long Twitter threads and generate a unique web page for it. You can easily read the Twitter thread on the web page and share that URL with a friend who does not use Twitter.

Start by finding the last tweet in the thread you want to scroll up and respond to. Here you should tag "@threadreaderapp" and type "unroll."

 Tag the Thread Reader app and use the Unroll keyword

After sending the tweet response, you will receive a message from the Thread Reader App Twitter handle with a link to the unread Twitter thread. Open the link to read the blog post thread.

If you do not want to screw in the user's message, you can also quote retweet of the thread. Add "@threadreaderapp unroll." In the comment text box. You will receive a reply with the link to the unrolled thread.

Both of these methods involve your Twitter profile in some way. If you do not want to fill in your followers' feeds, use the thread reader site instead.

First, copy the link to the Twitter thread. If you use a desktop browser, you can easily do so from the URL field. If you are using an app, click on the "Share" button from the tweet and select the "Copy link to Tweet" option.

As we mentioned above, the thread reader app provides a minimal and polished interface e for reading the long threads. It automatically imports all photos and displays links with rich previews. It also numbers all tweets in the thread.

You can hover over a tweet and click it to open the specific tweet on the Twitter site.
