- Twitter is handling Retweets with comments in a new way.
- They will now be called Quote Tweets and are searchable through the tweet they are quoting.
- Tap Quote Tweets on the original tweet to see all of the reactions.
Twitter is rolling out a new feature to all users of its platform. Starting today, Retweets with comments will now be called Quote Tweets and will be organized together under the original tweet.
In order to see all of the reactions, or Quote Tweets, to the original tweet, tap Quote Tweets on the tweet. This will take you to a list of all of the reactions from that tweet.
Twitter announced the new feature through the Twitter Support account (on Twitter of course).
Tweets about a Tweet add more to the conversation, so we've made them even easier to find.
