Every day I have so many ideas on writing twitter threads.
But text editing tools were not strict about the limits, so I had a hard time finding the right tool to help me craft threads.
So I built my own tool.
Tweetdrafts can help you store your ideas primarily as threads, so you can add them to twitter later.
This is for people who want to create and document threads in a single place.
Currently, it cannot publish to twitter. Plus twitter also doesn't allow thread publishing via api AFAIK.
To create threads on twitter, you have to copy-paste the tweets right now.
I also didn't want to store tweets in a central database for privacy reasons.
So I chose airtable as the medium to store and update tweets. Anyone who wants to use tweetdrafts is in full control of their data.
You need to copy a templated base into your account to get started.
I am primarily not a coder, but a builder who tries to hack things together. This was built with my limited knowledge of react and would love some help from IHers to improve this.
I know this can be easily built into twitter within a weekend by them, but they haven't
Which means it's not a problem big enough worth solving for them.
Until they do, I will keep improving the core experience of the app a day at a time.
Do you also feel tweet threads should be mainstream?
PS: If you want to help or try out my tool, do reach out. Would be happy to hook you up
