Twitter’s Testing a New Way to Display Retweets With Comments

Published

on

Twitter fans, rejoice.

The platform is currently testing a new display format for retweets, which would incorporate both retweets and retweets with comments into a single, overall retweet count.

Retweets with Comments

As you can see in this tweet, shared by user Bruce Floyd, in this new display format, all of your various retweets would be incorporated into one data point. Simple, easy.

This has been an annoyance for many Twitter users over time – up till now, Twitter has actually considered a retweet with comment to be a unique tweet in its own right, so it deliberately hasn’t included them in your total retweet count. Many have suggested that this is likely a bug, but it isn’t – and now, if the test goes well, the issue could be clarified, once and for all.

In addition to this, Twitter’s also testing out a new way to display retweets with comments in your retweet listings, splitting the two different types of retweets into their own sub-tabs.

Retweet with comment

Twitter has confirmed the test to SMT, saying that:

“This is a test on iOS. People have told us they want to see more of the conversations they care about, so we’re testing making Retweets with comments easier to see.”

So, iOS limited at this stage, but it looks to be a positive change that could make it easier to understand your retweets.

We’ll keep you updated on any progress.

As you’ve no doubt read many times, Gen Z is increasingly becoming a critical market for all businesses, and will soon be the largest generation of consumers around the world.

Which, of course, makes sense. That’s essentially how time works – as younger people grow up, and become adults and employees, and therefore become a larger focus for businesses in every way.

That’s not really a revelation, but it is worth noting the interests and consumption behaviors of Gen Z, and the factors that can influence their actions, in regards to marketing outreach.

Which is what this new overview from LinkedIn provides. LinkedIn has analyzed data from the 78 million Gen Z members on its platform to look at how they engage, how they spend, why they purchase from different companies, and more.
