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.

The Most Visited Websites in the World - 2023 Edition [Infographic]

Google remains the most-visited website in the world, while Facebook is still the most frequented social platform, based on web traffic. Well, actually, YouTube is, but YouTube’s only a partial social app, right?

The findings are displayed in this new visualization from Visual Capitalist, which uses SimilarWeb data to show the most visited websites in bubble chart format, highlighting the variance in traffic.

As you can see, following Facebook, Twitter and Instagram are the next most visited social platforms, which is likely in line with what most would expect – though the low numbers for TikTok probably stand out, given its dominance of modern media zeitgeist.

But there is a reason for that – this data is based on website visits, not app usage, so platforms like TikTok and Snapchat, which are primarily focused on the in-app experience, won’t fare as well in this particular overview.

In that sense, it’s interesting to see which social platforms are engaging audiences via their desktop offerings.

You can check out the full overview below, and you can read Visual Capitalist’s full explainer here.
