Daily millions of twitteratits share and re-tweet posts but the characters are not always sufficient to express. Now if you want to re-tweet do it with a comment along to express more.
Micro-blogging site Twitter has launched a new feature,’re-tweet with comment', which lets users add a tweet to their own tweets, so users can say more about the original message.
According to TechCrunch, this new feature will allow users to add 116 characters of additional commentary to the existing 140-character limit for a quoted tweet.
Previously, twitter let users’ embedded quoted tweets by cutting-and-pasting its URL, but 're-tweet and comment' lets you do that by just pressing a button. Users, however, cannot embed the full re-tweet and comment.
Twitter had been testing this new feature since last summer with certain accounts. The company wanted to make re-tweets more imploring and visually pleasing on timelines.
The feature is only available on the iPhone app and for web platforms. It will soon be available on Android.
