Twitter is reportedly working on a new feature that will allow users to easily create chains of individual tweets that exceed Twitter's 280-character limit for messages.

"Back in September, a developer discovered a hidden feature in Android's Twitter app that would allow you to type out several tweets and queue them to send one by one, making it easier to launch a "tweetstorm" without having to type and send each tweet individually," tech blog Android Police reported late on Friday.
