“Tweets about a tweet add more to the conversation.” Twitter makes Quote Tweets easier to find with a new counter in the Tweet detail view.
Twitter is finally adding a new quote tweets counter which lets you see how many times a tweet has been retweeted with a comment. It also makes easier than ever to search for and view all the quoted tweets in one place.
The new “Quote Tweets” counter will now be shown between the existing “Retweets” and “Likes” counters.
“Tweets about a Tweet add more to the conversation, so we’ve made them even easier to find. Retweets with comments are now called Quote Tweets and they’ve joined the Tweet detail view. Tap into a Tweet, then tap “Quote Tweets” to see them all in one place.” – the company tweeted.

Twitter has been playing around with the concepts for a few months. The company tests several names and user interface designs, finally settling on “Quote Tweets” instead of the more descriptive “Retweets With Comments.”
“Quote Tweets” have become an essential part of the conversation on Twitter. Instead of a simple “Retweet” they add a layer of personalization that helps other users better understand why someone has shared a tweet. Now that they get their own counter, my bet is that “Quote Tweets” will soon outrival retweets on the platform.
Especially because, let’s face it, it can be so much fun seeing people’s comments all in one place.
That’s it. Except Twitter had one more thing to tell us… 😷
1. "Retweets with comments" is changing to "Quote Tweets"
2. Quote Tweets will appear right next to Retweets
