Retweeting Twitter’s Official Support for Retweets

In case you haven’t heard, Twitter will officially be supporting the idea of retweets within the coming weeks, as reported here. Retweet is when a tweet is copied and pasted with attribution from another tweet.

From the screenshots provided at the above link, it looks like retweeting will be implemented rather seamlessly, but one question does arise. How will it handle a retweeters comments on the original tweet? A lot of retweets are done with the inclusion of additional comments. If comments won’t be supported, the new retweet support may not be useful to most people. We’ll just have to wait in the coming weeks to see how it all works out.
