Twitter has revamped its "quote tweet" functionality to let users say more about the original message they are retweeting.
The company promises that the revamped quote tweet button will roll out to Android soon.
The tweak will also allow Twitter users to add 116 characters of commentary irrespective of how many characters the original tweet contained.
In terms of functionality, it also delivers another bonus in terms of the readability, and hence usability, of Twitter the demise of the truncated Tweet.
Twitter announced it with the following tweet on Twitter:
Presumably third-party apps will be able to add support for the new revamped quote tweet as time progresses, however.
The change will come to the iOS and desktop apps in an app update, which began rolling out today.
Twitter said in February that 288 million people now actively use the service every month, up from the 284 million it reported in the third quarter.
