WASHINGTON: Ahead of the US presidential election, Twitter on Wednesday rolled out updates that encourage more thoughtful amplification of Tweets, which add more context to content.
The micro-blogging platform is encouraging users to add their own thoughts through “quote tweeting” rather than simply amplifying others’ posts by retweeting, IANS reported.
“One of these updates is temporarily prompting Quote Tweets instead of Retweets. We heard your overall feedback and understand that some of you, like artists who share their work on Twitter, value Retweets. You can still Retweet by not adding anything into the Quote Tweets composer,” Twitter said
