For those Twitter users that like to put their own commentary for other people’s tweets, this is good news as you can now do so with more characters, but still within the 140-character limit.
Twitter just officially launched its “retweet with comment” feature, which it began testing last summer.
“Retweet with comment” allows users to embed a tweet in their own tweets, which lets them get around Twitter’s 140-character limit when they write their own commentary. The feature is now available on Twitter’s site and iOS app and will be available on its Android app soon.

The feature’s arrival has been heralded with much (somewhat ironic) rejoicing by Twitter users. Unfortunately, you can’t embed the full retweet and comment, as I just found out to my disconcertment while preparing this post (click on the embedded tweets to see how they look in the wild).
Please retweet this to spread awareness for retweets. https://t.co/aPKETaWm1I
