Want to make a thread on Twitter but still not sure how? Check out the following reviews: how to create a thread, what a thread is, and what are some examples.
As a Twitter kid, have you ever heard of the term thread, cult, or chain tweet?
Well, here we will discuss many things about threads or chain tweets.
You must have also heard the horror story of the Dancing Village that went viral recently?
Well, the story was originally presented in the form of a thread on Twitter, which was eventually retold by many YouTubers and even discussed on television.
But, until now you are still confused. What is a thread? How to make it? And what are some examples?
No need to worry, because the following is a complete review of this thread or cult.
What Are Twitter Threads?
Threads, threads, kultwit (Twitter lectures), or threads, it’s the same thing, chain tweets.
A thread is a continuous series of tweets made by someone.
Or in another language called kultwit. Kultwit stands for “Twitter lectures”. It is called so because this cult is a series of tweets that discuss one particular topic. If abroad, this trend is called tweetstorm.
Well, considering the limited number of characters that can be contained in one tweet, only 280 characters, even though Twitter users sometimes need a larger portion to share something, they outsmart it by creating this thread.
So, they make a lot of tweets that cover the same topic, then they connect those tweets in their own way.
Usually, they create a thread by adding the hashtag #kultwit or #thread as a sign that they are posting a thread.
In addition, Twitter users also usually add numbering in each tweet to make it easier for people to read threads in sequence.
If they want to add another tweet, then they do it manually, by searching for the last connection and then clicking Reply.
Recently, however, Twitter has introduced a new feature that makes it easier to create and manage threads.
It also sees how this cult trend is getting more and more popular in the Twitter world and is indeed quite effective for sharing something on a particular topic.
Reporting from the Twitter Help Center, with this thread feature, we can provide additional context, updates, or additional points by linking multiple tweets together.

5. Breaking News
Reading news is mostly done in mainstream media, such as Kompas, Detik, television stations, and the like.
However, reading on Twitter sometimes presents unique news that is rarely presented in mainstream media.
The ease of disseminating information on Twitter is also very supportive for creating breaking news threads.
The spread of news is also accelerated with many Twitter users taking the initiative to retweet news threads that should be spread.
