Let's imagine you are on Twitter and at some point you see a nice but long thread (threads are multiple tweets linked together from the same person, see twitter definition).
You think that it is hard to read because you have to click on "see more" again and again. To use the bot, take any of the tweet that is part of the thread (so basically stay where you are) hit reply to any of these tweet and mention the bot plus the "unroll" keyword.
literally: "@ThreadReaderApp unroll"
Then 1 or 2 minutes later you will get a notification with a link to read the full unrolled version. So right after your reply to the bot you can leave to read something else because you will get a link with everything in it.See the video:
Go to the website ThreadReaderApp.com on the homepage click on "unroll a full Twitter thread" Enter the link of any of the tweet that is part of the thread and validate.
Thread Reader is a free service here to help people read threads with ease, we are not here to steal anyone's content.
So the process to remove and block Thread Reader is very easy and straightforward, you only have to mention the bot @ThreadReaderApp with the keyword: "block me" using the account you want to be removed from the site.
That would be: "@ThreadReaderApp block me" That's it.
Blocking will take up to 15 minute, it is for all your past and future content.
Thread Reader does not save the content forever. Multiple time per day the service will sync with Twitter and remove blocked/suspended accounts as well as individual deleted tweets from a given thread. If you are interested to keep a copy of an unrolled thread we suggest than you save it on your computer.
