November last year, around 021Disrupt, I discovered twitter threads – a series of tweets linked to each other, on a given topic.
I started using twitter threads as writing prompts, chapter summaries, class notes and pointers for my students. Faizan Siddiqi joined first few #tweetstorms where we waxed poetically about things that had crossed our desks that morning.
Threads turned out to be so much fun that when I had the time and I could, I did one every day for a few days running. Followed by weeks of silence. Over 8 months they have added up.
Threads get triggered when I am teaching either at Nestio or Habib University or end up answering a question for a client that I think would benefit from a broader audience. They are much easier than long form articles but also harder because it’s awkward to try and be profound within 250 characters.
Yet that is their biggest appeal. A 10 tweet thread is less than 2500 characters and can be used to do a decent dive in a topic of interest.
Here is a small sample for posterity. I will add and update the list every few months.

The meta thread – thread of threads. This was a thread of thread that I put together for my own personal use and reference. It will kill most thread unrollers since it’s a nested thread.
