Twitter said it will no longer prompt quote tweets from the retweet icon.
”Retweet functionality will be returning to the way it was before,” the company said in a statement on Wednesday.
Quote tweets instead of retweets was intended to encourage thoughtful amplification, but that has not happened in practice, the company said.
