Twitter has begun rolling out a new retweet and quote tweet function that allows users to add GIFs, photos and videos to their shared content. The update provides a cleaner presentation of in-feed multimedia embedded into the retweets, making it easier for users to distinguish the original tweet from the quoted one.
“The most exciting part of this project was that we were working on a feature that many people asked for,” the company wrote. Twitter also announced it will continue to work on functions and updates that allow its users to “express themselves,” while making the entire retweeting process more readable and interactive.
For more much-appreciated app updates, Tinder has recently announced “Festival Mode.” Here’s how it works.
