Twitter is reportedly testing a new "Retweet with comment" function. Twitter user @hopewithstefan

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.

Once the new feature disappeared for test users, some were overjoyed to get the original "Quote tweet" function back.
