Twitter for iOS updated with support for embedded retweets

Twitter for iOS updated with support for embedded retweetsTwitter has just launched a new 'retweet with comment' feature, which allows users to feature other tweets in their own posts without using up available characters. Twitter previously let users embed quoted tweets by cutting-and-pasting the URL, but 'retweet and comment' lets you do that by just pressing a button.

The feature is rolling out to users on the web, and for iOS users, but Android users need to wait more time to get the same experience.

As the new changes are applied on the service side, you wont be required to update your app. However it is recommended that you download the latest version directly on your iOS device through the Apple App Store or by using the following link

In order to quote a tweet, users will have to tap or press the Retweet button and select "Quote Tweet" from the options menu. The revamped "quote tweet" gives the user a clutter-free experience while quoting a tweet as it shows an embedded tweet and provides an additional 116 charactors for your comments alongside the quoted tweet.
