Over the past decade, Twitter has become a popular source of breaking news and a means to share information in real-time. This unique ability to give a perspective of “what’s trending” makes it unmatched. In my opinion, Twitter is the most valuable social network out there.
If you’re a regular Twitter user, chances are that you might have come across long Twitter threads that help the message go beyond the 280 character limit. These threads are often used to share a complete news story or provide supporting information. But, how do you follow or share a long thread to make it more readable? There are numerous bots and tools out there that can let you unroll Twitter threads.
In this article, I’ll be showing you how to use myThreadReader app as a Twitter thread reader. There are two ways to do it and I’ll be sharing both the methods one by one:
1. Open the Twitter thread that you wish to unroll and copy the link. If you’re using the app, you can do so by tapping the Share button and choosing Copy Link To Tweet.
2. If you’re using Twitter on your desktop or phone browser, simply copy the URL from the browser address bar.
3. Now open myThreadReader.com website and spot the box at the top with Read Thread button. Paste your thread link and click/tap Read Thread.
4. Your long Twitter thread will unroll into a readable blog post in an instant. Along with a minimal reading experience, this free web app imports pictures and fetches article link previews as well.
5. You can share this thread with your friends and family directly by copying the URL from the address bar or click on the Tweet this Thread at the bottom.
1. If you don’t want to do the simple copy-paste charade, you can simply reply to the long thread with @mythreadreader.
2. Upon doing so, the bot will tweet back a link to a readable post with all the content in one place.
3. Here’s an example of the same:
Bonus tip: When replying to a thread to make it readable, you don’t need to type the full name of bot each time. I’d recommend you to follow the bot @mythreadreader so that Twitter starts suggesting to you as soon as you start typing.
As I said above, there are numerous apps out there that work as a Twitter thread reader and help you unroll tweets in an instant. Give those tools a try and don’t forget to comment below if you found any other tool with more features.
