It seems struggling for growth is having a great innovative impact on Twitter lately. The micro-blogging social platform is constantly testing new features.
This week, Twitter is reported to be testing a new “Retweet with Comment” feature that allows users to have more space to comment when they are retweeting another user.

Up to now, when a user wanted to add a comment to a retwet, they could only click “Quote Tweet” but this only gave the user as much space as left by the original tweet, within the 140-character limit.
The new “Retweet with Comment” feature surfaces the retweeted message as an image, leaving the full 140-character for users to share their own thoughts
This new feature is only testing over mobile for now, and ad per all testings, it is not available to all users at the moment.
I think this new feature is cool, except for the image bit. I wish Twitter would become reasonable and let people use an extra 140 characters when retweeting, seems like a simpler idea, no?
