Twitter introduces 'Retweet with comment'

After testing ‘Retweet with comment’ last summer, and then removing it, Twitter has now officially rolled out this exciting feature.

With Twitter's ‘Retweet with comment’, you can embed a tweet in your own tweets. Cool, because now you can add about 120 characters to your opinion or comment on something you are retweeting.

In the past, it was possible for Twitter users to embed quoted tweets by cutting-and-pasting its URL, but ‘Retweet with comment’ lets you do that by just pressing a button. The amazing advantage is that you now can share and comment to tweets without having to shorten the original tweet, which means that its context and meaning is preserved.

How to do it? Simply hit on the Retweet icon. You’ll be able to add your comment. Once it’s published, your tweet will include the retweeted tweet.

This feature is available on Twitter’s website and the iPhone app. The feature will roll out on Android soon.
