    Micro-blogging website Twitter is reportedly testing a feature that will simplify the way users post 'tweetstorms' - a series of related tweets posted by a user in quick succession.

    According to a report on Engadget on Monday, A user has discovered a hidden, experimental 'tweetstorm' feature in Twitter's Android app that simplifies the process.

    "Instead of posting tweets one at a time and replying to them in sequence, you compose everything behind the scenes and share it all at once," the report added.

    Hidden inside the Android app is a way to write a 'tweetstorm' and see it broken into distinct tweets and then tweet them all at once. Twitter, however, declined to comment on the feature which is yet to be made available to the public.

    Twitter has lifted the 140-character limit for its 328 million-plus users to send direct messages. While Twitter is largely a public experience, direct messages let you have private conversations about the memes and news that unfold on the microblogging site.

    The company said last year that it would stop counting photos, videos and GIF animations toward the 140-character limit.
