New Twitter feature has more Retweet options

Basically, users can now Retweet with a visual that allows them to express more emotion toward what they are retweeting.

This feature has been highly requested by users for a while.

According to Twitter, the new feature will include the following:

  • Clearer visual hierarchy with a condensed inner Tweet
  • Including an avatar in the inner Tweet to give more context helping you quickly see who’s talking
  • Simple box container for easier interacting

Twitter also announced plans for more retweeting options. Though the message was cryptic, we look forward to seeing the update:

“Another update is coming soon to make Retweets with media more interactive and easier to read … we’re also exploring more ways to help people express themselves,” according to Twitter.
