    How do I start a Twitter thread on my S6 phone? The path supplied by Twitter, doesn't work. If anyone knows, & wants to tell me, explain it to like I'm a newbie to this (which I am), & I've wandered from my village.

    Welcome to Android Forums, JayDeeSea1! :)
    I've been on Twitter almost since its inception, but I'm afraid I don't know what a 'Twitter thread' on a phone is. Can you please explain exactly what you're trying to do?
    Can you share the path? And who on Twitter gave it to you?
    Now, now! We were all newbies at one point. :D

    yeah i'm not sure what you mean as well. what do you mean "the path supplied by twitter doesn't work"?
    what happens? is there an error? do you mean using hash tags (#)?

    The screenshot I included, has more to it & can be found in the help center, using 'thread', in the search option.

    isn't that just tweeting out something?
    so what happens when you try to compose something?

    A thread (multiple tweets), is different from a regular tweet (which I can do w/ no problem).

    Okay! From your OP, I had the idea this was something to create/put on your phone.

    When you're logged in on Twitter, start to compose a new tweet as usual. But when you're done filling it up, instead of sending it, press the + icon that's near the bottom of the tweet. This will add a new, blank tweet for you to type in. Repeat this process until your 'thread'--which is more like a chain of separate tweets--is complete, THEN send it. They'll all be sent together.

    If you're still not clear, I'll post screenshots stepping through the process.

    I don't use it, Snapchat, Instagram, Myspace or Facebook
    First I think Snapchat and Instagram are more for teens.
    Second Twitter what the bleep am I going post about "eating banana watching paint dry
    #banana #dry# best life ever!
    I left Facebook because of oversensitive little mama boys

    Yeah, and/or self-absorbed people with too much time on their hands. I use neither.
    Ha ha, that's not how I use it! :D

    I tweet things that are important to me. For example, as a vegan and animal rights advocate, I tweet things like petitions to end the heinous dog meat trade in Asia. Or, as a proud resident of Arcadia, I'll tweet things like when one of our students is among 10--worldwide--who got a perfect score on an AP Calculus exam. Stuff like that.
    I left because of fb's covert practices involving privacy and security--and they've only gotten worse in the ten years since then! Storing passwords as plain text...that employees could read...just unbelievable--and that was recent!
