So it was reported earlier last month that Twitter was going to add a new update to their Quotes which you can read more on that here
Now we’re finally getting to see that update coming to life as Twitter is officially rolling out its new quote tweets counter, which lets you easily see every time a given tweet has been retweeted alongside a comment.
“Tweets about a Tweet add more to the conversation, so we’ve made them even easier to find,” the company said, also noting that the new counter will be shown between the existing “Retweets” and “Likes” labels. The social network has been testing the feature for a few months now, with different names and user interface designs.
Twitter’s Support Team uploaded a 36 second video to introduce this feature for all of its users which you can below. If you haven’t seen this new update, that’s probably because you haven’t updated the app on your phone so be sure to do just that to check this out.
To try it out, you can do that by finding a tweet posted by a user of your choice, or even your own tweets, and tap Quote Tweets (if available), which will then reveal a list of retweeted posts with comments from other users.
Searching for quote tweets has always been possible by entering the URL of a tweet into Twitter’s search box, but no one has time for that, so a dedicated button makes the process much more convenient. It’s a handy feature considering that so many people use the quote tweet function instead of replying to a tweet, and should make following these conversations easier. And sometimes, seeing everybody dunking on a tweet in one place is just fun.
