I created a Twitter Thread Generator !

Chris here with another weird idea I had to implement last night at 1 A.M. πŸ‘‹

And as always,

Tweet with caution & respect πŸ’™

Nice! Seems to be an issue if I paste in a block of text, it only seems to slice out the last part into the final Tweet (it correctly calculates that, say, I need 5 Tweets, but the first box keeps the majority of the content). Great stuff, though, I'll keep an eye on where this goes.

Thank you, it means a lot coming from you ! πŸ˜„

This bug already has an open issue, I'm going to give it a look in the afternoon.

Pretty good!

Idea: Every text area could be big enough to fit the whole tweet without scrolling.

Looks awesome! I wonder if it's worth adding (1/10), (2/10)...(10/10) just at the end of every tweet, so the reader knows the order & how many tweets there are in the thread?

Great catch Natalie πŸ˜„that was part of the plan for the near future. Of course it's open-source so I might let anyone who's interested do it

Great job Christopher !

Do you plan to add a Twitter authentication so the full thread can be tweeted without having to copy/paste a block one by one ?

Thanks Valentin,

It could be a great upgrade, I'd have to read up on Twitter's authentication documentation first though
