Unroll Your Twitter Threads Into WordPress

Turn your recent Twitter thread into your next blog post.

Have you ever written a Twitter thread, and then wished you could turn it into a blog post? You can now do it in seconds.

Writing Twitter threads, also known as tweetstorms, can be a great way to clarify your thoughts: keeping each paragraph under 280 characters forces you to focus on your message.

Threads are great for engagement and sudden bursts of inspiration. But when the thread is done, wouldn’t it be nice to have a quick way to capture the full conversation in one place — one page to read, one link to share, all your thoughts captured on a website you own?

Now, when you embed a tweet that’s part of a larger thread, you’ll see a new “Unroll” button on the block toolbar. Click or tap it to import the entire thread into your post.

Publish the whole thread as one easy-to-read post — and since WordPress has no character limit, add any extra thoughts that have popped up in the meantime!

    Does this use the Thread Reader bot, or is it independent of it? #curious

    If more tweets get added to the tweetstorm, will my post automatically update or do I need to do that manually?

      Good question. New tweets in a thread will not be automatically added to your website. Whatever content is in the tweetstorm at the time you unroll it is what will show up on your page/post draft.
