The Twitter thread can be used for text tweets, media, and including the voice tweet.

Simply open the Twitter app. Then tap the Compose button at the bottom.
First, you can write the first tweet for your thread. Instead of tapping Tweet to publish, you can tap the + button at the bottom to add more tweets combined as a thread.
Now, “Add another Tweet” text comes out. You can then write the next tweet for the Twitter thread you want to make.
You can keep creating more tweets for the thread by tapping the + button. Once all the tweets are ready to be published, simply tap the Tweet All button.

Now, begin writing a new tweet/replies for the thread you previously made.
