Twitter is testing out yet another new feature with some of its users that could expand options for retweets.
The latest function has rolled out in beta to a select few users, reports Mashable. It gives them the option to "Retweet with comment" -- creating a screenshot of the tweet, called a "Twitter card," and allowing users to attach it and add their views without going over the 140-character limit.
Some users did not like the function, and took to -- what else -- Twitter to complain, while others said they thought it could be useful.
Wait how do I quote tweet now?? Because "retweet with comment" isn't the same thing 😰 pic.twitter.com/ssCASmQFp8— felicity smoak. ⚂ (@hopewithstefan) June 20, 2014

RTs that turn the original tweet into a Twitter Card that you can comment on? I actually REALLY like this idea http://t.co/401fqLrus9— Stephanie Haberman (@StephLauren) June 24, 2014
Once the new feature disappeared for test users, some were overjoyed to get the original "Quote tweet" function back.
