This April, Twitter added quoted retweet counts on iOS and rolled it out on Android and web apps in May. The social media site now checks a dedicated segment on every tweet for cited retweets.
“A few months ago, we’ve made Retweets with Comments more visible when you tap to see Retweets on a Tweet,” a Twitter spokesperson wrote in an email to The Verge. “This is available to everyone. Now, we’re testing making Retweets with Comments accessible directly on the Tweet and new language (Quotes) to see if this makes them easier to access and more understandable.”
According to “The Verge,” there will be a separate ‘Quotes’ alongside Likes and Retweets.
The new process saves an extra step, where you have to tap to view the total number of quoted retweets. Besides the extra step, users can now easily see the number of quoted retweets, making the feature more simplified.
Twitter is actively working with a few users on the new interface. A precise timetable is not yet known about the public rollout. Based on user feedback, the company may widely rollout the new quotes feature widely over the coming weeks.
As this is a minor change from the company to enjoy the improved user experience, tweeter could make it a part of its subscription model. However, no such announcement has been made by the company yet.
