Twitter Unveils Revamped Quote Tweets
Twitter users are now able to add their own comments to Retweets, as the social network has unveiled a “revamped quote Tweet” feature.
To use the feature, Web users simply click the normal Retweet icon. Then, a pop-up appears that displays the Tweet and a comment box. Users are able to type their own comments in the “add a comment” field and then click “Tweet” to publish. The Tweet is then shared with followers as a “quote Tweet.” Conversely, users can simply click “Retweet” on the comment pop-up screen if they don’t want to add a comment.
Twitter’s announcement notes that the revamped Quote Tweet is now rolling out on the iPhone and Web, and will be coming to Android devices soon.
