Twitter is rolling out a new feature dubbed ‘quote tweet with reaction’ which allows users to react to a tweet using a photo or a video. Under the normal tweet, the retweet menu will give users a new ‘quote tweet with reaction’ option alongside the usual ‘retweet’ and ‘quote tweet’.
Once you click on the new option, a new screen will launch allowing you to take a photo or a video with a copy of the tweet embedded on it. Users also have the option of adding media from their gallery. The company announced the feature on its platform, giving users an idea of how it would work.
