Twitter is beta testing a new re-tweet (RT) feature.
On first look, it’s pretty neat, but it’s missing an important feature – the ability to add your comments to the RT. This morning I saw a cute post by a library geek dad I know, it was a link to a T-shirt that I thought other geek dad’s might want to see – but the tweet said “I’m so getting this” so when I re-tweeted it looked like I (not a dad) wanted the shirt.
I’m also not seeing my RTs on the my Twitter homepage or in Adium – I only see them on my profile page on Twitter – which may be because the feature is still in beta – but at the same time, how do I really RT and share with my friends?? Hopefully this will all become more clear as I play some more.
