Named Threads, users will henceforth be able to club together related tweets to form a string all of which relates to a single issue or subject.
The current entry limit for each thread is 25 according to Twitter but it may change depending on how the feature is adopted by users.

"That's where this update to threads comes in!" In simple words, this feature will let you organize multi-tweet threads. The microblogging company has been lately trying to make more users engage in tweets and compose it. Twitter will automatically put them in a thread and publish them all at once. The good news is that you can still tweetstorm the old way if you want to.
