Twitter is a free university; you can learn great things from experts.

Informational tweets, video lectures, and long threads can teach you what thousands of pages couldn’t in a few seconds.

Among them, Twitter threads are probably the most popular methods to convey Twitter users’ information, experience, or opinion to their audience.

Twitter threads are also a perfect method to increase Twitter impressions and engagement. When a user engages with your Twitter thread, it automatically increases your post’s view time, and the Twitter algorithm likes it!

That’s why you start to see more and more threads on Twitter these days. And they are getting longer day by day.

When they are very long, it may be difficult to read them by opening up tweet by tweet. You may prefer to unroll Twitter threads and read them as newspaper articles on one page. In this way, they would be more coherent.
