Forget 280 characters. And forget the tweet number indicator that never gets properly filled out in long, long threads.
Twitter’s feeling bold again. After doubling its 140-character limit, it is now letting select Android and iOS app users in on a new feature in beta: the Tweetstorm. This allows users to send a single thread of multiple tweets at once, all of them fully featured with media if desired.
Code for the feature was dug up by a developer under the psuedonym Devesh Logendran in September.
WOAH! Twitter has a hidden tweet storm feature!

The feature has not been made official on the Twitter blog and there’s no word on when it may go public.
