Twitter's latest experiment rethinks the retweet


Twitter already made the move to allow tweets inside tweets, but it appears the 140-character social stream is looking to revamp the way we all retweet, too. According to TechCrunch, a new feature being labeled as "retweet with comment" that enables users to better participate in the on-going convo by adding proper context could be on the way. Currently, in the company's own app there are options for a straight retweet and quoting the musing to be recast. Rumor has it that the new method could replace that latter choice, and in the process allow for a proper comment where the ol' RT text count doesn't eat into your precious character allotment. That original tweet will likely appear in card form -- much like the embeded option -- but hopefully via a single button press rather than the current copy/paste method.
