I didn't know how to add the hashtag on a retweet. I just hit the retweet button and it, well, retweeted. I guess I'm a twitter failure! :(

Ziltoid says:

I did the same thing lol. I dont know how to add the hash tag

Richard Devine says:

Need to hit quote tweet instead of just regular old retweet :)

kch50428 says:

But that won't include the hashtag as required, because the original tweet does not contain the hashtag... and, the latest version of Twitter's own iOS app does not give one an opportunity to edit or add to the retweet. It just got updated today...

Richard Devine says:

Quote tweet gives you the chance to add the hashtag. That's the point :)

kch50428 says:

Not on Twitter's app it doesn't. Not on Twitter's web site it doesn't. Those are the points.

KFronz782 says:

YES YOU CAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

lbaxter says: itself does not have a "quote tweet" option. If it exists, please, someone point me in that direction.

ZkiZZoiD says:

Where is the "quote tweet" located??

KFronz782 says:

if you hit the RT option (box thing) it should give you 2 options, Retweet or Quote Tweet

projekt_war says:

I just quoted the tweet...does that count? #puppyface

jngmin00 says:

lol. I don't use tweeter too and I have the same derpy problem. I so noob in Twitter :(

freddieh1 says:

I don't tweet yet. But I do like cell phones. So I would like to win this contest. Plus I hope the new iPhone has a 6.2" screen.

Traverse1 says:

I hope they add other ways to win soon, I don't use life isn't interesting enough to use social networking sites. Just posting a comment is huge for me :)

rewNATION says:

I don't use what are the other ways to enter?

ght says:

I copied and pasted from the article. Not a true retweet, since there is no tweet from iMore with the link in it. Hope that counts.

I'm a liar. There is a tweet from iMore, but it's several hours older than this article, so I never looked that far back.
