Twitter Debuts Native Retweet Feature

Until now, Twitter never had a function on its own site to "retweet" messages with a single click. Users had to manually resubmit tweets that they liked, unless they used a automated 3rd-party program (such as TweetDeck). The biggest change in Twitter's own native software will be aiming to preserve the original content by removing the additional syntax that accompanies retweets, as well as the ability to annotate the post or add comments. This will eliminate spamming or causing unintentional negative reactions, as people can currently retweet others' messages and change the original tweet. Head over to Extima for more info...
