Twitter has left big mark on the Internet as one of the best micro blogging websites that let us share our thoughts in just 140 characters. As we know that it can contain text, photos, and videos and there are millions of Tweets are shared in real time, every day.
As far as I believe, there is only one big disadvantage of this social networking website. And it is the character limit. I have felt several times that due to limitation of characters, it becomes to difficult to express myself in a precise 140 characters. For this reason, Twitter has lots of dead accounts as people are not able to connect with Twitter’s philosophy of 140 characters.
Now, This disadvantage is no longer with us as Twitter has recently launched its new feature “”retweet with comment”. This feature will allow you to tweet of others as a quote along with your tweet. Now isn’t that great?
How to use it
You all know how to retweet, Right? So it is done by clicking on the retweet button, and there you will see “quoted tweet” along with “Add comment” option. You can see a small version of it in the stream and also allows you to add your own 140 characters. Before this feature, Twitter let users embed tweets by cutting-and-pasting its URL, but “retweet with comment” lets you do that by just pressing a button. See below image for a reference to get more idea.
In short,”Retweet with comment” allows users to share an embeded tweet in their own tweets, which allows them get around Twitter’s 140-character limit when they write their own comment. The feature is now available on Twitter’s site, iOS App and will be available on its Android app soon as per as announcement.
Let’s enjoy this feature and share as much as you want. Stay tuned to know about more technology news. Keep sharing!
