Twitter quote tweets are now easier to find

Read Time:1 Minute, 27 Second

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. It’s experimented with labeling the counter as “Retweets with Comments” rather than “Quote Tweets” for example, and it’s also tested hiding it in a sub-menu rather than showing it directly on the tweet.

It’s always been possible to search for quote tweets by entering a tweet’s URL into Twitter’s search box, but a dedicated button makes the process much more convenient. It’s a handy feature considering so many people use the quote tweet function in place of replying to a tweet, and should make it easier to follow these conversations. And sometimes it’s just fun to see everyone dunking on a tweet in one place.
