Some welcome changes are coming to Twitter, with replies, links, and media attachments no longer counting towards your 140 character limit. Even with these changes, sticking to Twitter’s 140 character limit is a challenge, especially if you’re trying to get a coherent argument out about something complex.
While some third-party services provide a way to get past that limit, they require your followers to click a link or open a screenshot. Android app Storm It, on the other hand, offers an interesting alternative.
The app’s name comes from the term “tweetstorm”, coined by entrepreneur Marc Andreessen. If you’ve spent any amount of time on Twitter you’re bound to have seen one. It’s when a Twitter user publishes a series of numbered tweets (often a rant) in rapid succession.
Storm It takes all the hard work out of putting together your own tweetstorm.
Write up your thoughts as a paragraph, and paste it into Storm It. The app will automatically divide your text into 140 character sized chunks, and if you want, you can also automatically number your tweets with Storm It.
Finally, you can use the app to publish your series of tweets.
