This bot unrolls Twitter threads and turns them into entertaining blog posts

For as most as a users adore to hatred on their height of choice, Twitter spasmodic unequivocally comes by with a low dive on a prohibited subject that provides actual, suggestive insight. Such an eventuality is roughly adequate to remind us because we all poke a lives divided on there to start with.

Remember when we used to blog? Like, we released thoughts in sentences and paragraphs instead of a array of amicable media convulsions? It used to happen! This is kind of like that.

A Twitter bot called Thread Reader App (@threadreaderapp) can take your hardly entertaining Twitter diatribe of choice and renovate it into normal content served adult on a sparse, normal looking page. You competence have beheld these “unrolled” threads — they’re popping adult all over.

To get your tweetstorm of choice hand-delivered in blog form, we only need to respond to a thread with @threadreaderapp and a keyword “unroll.” While Twitter threads that do a whole 1/347 numbering thing review kind of weirdly, normal chunks of content get sewn together into something really clear indeed.

The creator also offers a Chrome prolongation that turns this routine into a elementary array of clicks. (We haven’t tested it so, as with all things, download during your possess risk.) Really feeling it? You can present to a plan on Patreon.

Of course, for each good Twitter thread there are 100 of threads of tedious dudes mansplaining. Or 200 of hardly sentient swindling theorists regurgitating a misinterpretation du jour. If a Thread Reader App’s trending page is any indication, a Pizzagate throng is amatory a choice to put tweetstorms into a readable, blog-like format too.

While we might not all trust in a surreptitious globalist takeover during a hands of a illuminati, we consider we can all determine that it’s good to have some-more entertaining Twitter threads!
