Twitter thread unroll so you can read tweet storm on one page without distraction: a.k.a.

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/04/24

I am have been using – and more so since G+ went belly up – but forgot to schedule a post on it, so here it is:

[WayBack] Show HN: Unroll Twitter threads for easy reading | Hacker News:

I made this new service called Thread Reader that given a first tweet from a twitter thread will return a carefully designed web page with the full [WayBack] Tweetstorm unrolled.

It comes with two “bots” – one that answer people who mention “@tttthreads unroll” replying to the first tweet of a threads and give them a link to the unrolled story – the second that search twitter for “#threads” and check if it is a valid thread (> 5 tweets) and if so post a unrolled version back to the author (limited to a few post per hour to avoid to be too spammy)

The stack is good old LAMP using the PHP silex micro framework and of course Twitter API

[WayBack] Thread Reader Thread Reader helps you discover and read the best of Twitter Threads
