Twitter rolls out retweeting feature

Twitter is rolling out Project Retweet, in other words a retweeting feature which lets a user easily forward an interesting tweet to their followers.

Only a small number of selected users are to be given the retweet button initially, as Twitter wants to bug test it and make sure everything is okay before fully releasing the feature.

Users will be able to see what they’ve retweeted, and also who has retweeted anything they originally tweeted. (That’s a lot of tweeting).

It’s a bit of an odd name, though, retweeting. Sounds a bit too much like someone with a lisp running away, to our minds.
