Here’s something for those of you who want to keep reiterating things you’ve tweeted in the past. From now on, you are able to retweet or quote tweet your own tweets.
This has been made official by the social network through a retweet of its own, of course – very much fitting for the purpose. However, you’ll need to click through to the Twitter website to view that self-retweet in a nicer fashion compared to the link-only manner in which embedded tweets show this (see below).
Now you can easily Retweet or Quote Tweet yourself with just a few taps. Pick an old favorite and give it a try! 🔄 https://t.co/bUj4ezQNOJ

Previously, you’ve only been allowed to retweet or quote tweet others’ mumblings, whenever you found something worth sharing with your followers. That all changes today, so it will be easier than ever to annoy those following you by retweeting the same things over and over again – no more copying and pasting the content of your old tweets to accomplish the same thing.
