Quote Tweet vs Retweet
If retweet with comment is one and the same with quote tweet, what’s the difference between them and a retweet?
Retweets are the simple version of Quote Tweets. When you retweet you’re re-posting a tweet and spreading it out to your followers without any additions. This is a simple one-tap action.
However, if you want to add a comment to emphasize or highlight the content of your retweet you have to opt for the new Quote Tweets feature.
