Twitter launches new feature ‘re-tweet with comment’
ISLAMABAD (Web Desk) - Micro-blogging website Twitter has launched a new feature, 're-tweet with comment', which allows its users to add a tweet to their own tweets,

The users can now say a lot more about the original message that will appear along with the tweet as ‘comment’.

This new feature will allow users to add 116 characters of additional commentary to the existing 140-character limit for a quoted tweet.

Previously, Twitter had allowed the users to embed tweets

Previously, Twitter let users embedd quoted tweets by cutting-and-pasting its URL, but 'retweet and comment' lets you do that by just pressing a button. Users, however, cannot embed the full re-tweet and comment.

The feature is now available on Twitter's site and iPhone app and will soon be available on its Android app.
