Thread Twitter, how to produce it and have it validated by your customers?
The limit of 280 characters per tweet can be blocking when you need to develop an idea. To remedy this, Twitter allows you to post a succession of tweets linked to each other, which appear in the form of a discussion: threads.
With Pilot, you can create a Twitter thread by customising the properties of this type of content. Follow the guide!
Go to the application settings, section Content types.
Here, several possibilities are open to you :
Create a new content type especially dedicated to twitter threads (click on “Add a content type”)
Modify the content type “Tweet “, which will then allow you to produce one or more tweets directly from this type of content. (Click on “modify”)
For this tutorial we have chosen the second option. You may have decided to create a new type of content first. The following steps are identical.

We will modify the “content “ field, and activate the option “can be repeated “.
Click on “Validate”.
Finally go to the “Contents” section, and create a Tweet.
