Twitter has changed the method of retweeting temporarily for users around the world, in a move to implement the many measures that the company is taking temporarily before the US elections, according to the statement.
Twitter explained in a series Of the tweets, the Retweet service is temporarily disabled and users can re-post the tweets they want to share by using “Quote a Tweet” instead of retweeting.
This is one of a series of temporary changes introduced by Twitter, with the aim of fighting misleading tweets during the US elections.
Twitter has relied on retweeting by quoting mainly to encourage people to add their own comments to the tweet they want to re-post, instead of just retweeting the posts.
Several users responded to Twitter tweets expressing their dissatisfaction with this change, but Twitter confirmed that users can still retweet through quotes, and add a comment.
Twitter announced earlier this month that it would change its retweeting method from October 20 until the end of the US election week.
Currently, when you click the Retweet tab, you are automatically switched to the “Tweet Quote” mode. Users can add their opinions to the comment on the Tweet before retweeting it to their followers.
The Twitter company had revealed in a tweet last Friday that it would “introduce new measures before the next US presidential elections next November,” with the aim of increasing content and encouraging more thoughtful considerations before inflating Tweets’. P>
