Twitter Now Allows You to Retweet with Comments

If you use Twitter, you may have noticed a change when it comes to retweeting. Twitter has now given users the ability to easily add their own commentary when retweeting others.

Before this feature was introduced, retweeting was a bit of an annoying process if you wanted to add in your own two-cents. You either had to manually copy and paste the link into a new tweet, or copy and paste a tweet’s original text into a new tweet with your comment squeezed in — making sure to be within the 140 character limit.

This current feature lets you skip all that copy-pasting and allows you to easily insert your own comments before hitting the Retweet button. Your retweets will now show up on Twitter feeds as follows:

The new feature does have some drawbacks when it comes to mobile Twitter users though, as rewteeted vines or photos will appear much smaller on screen. But overall I think the feature is plus especially for users who want to easily “tag” others in tweets – a similar practice used in other social networks such as Instagram and Facebook.

So Twitter now allows you to retweet with comments. Love it? Hate it? Let me know!
