Twitter has revealed that it is testing a new "quotes" count on tweets. This engagement measure would be added to the tweet's existing retweets and likes counts, which are now shown beneath the tweet itself. There was no indication as to when this feature might make its way into production.
A quotation tweet is similar to a retweet. A simple retweet spreads the word about another person's tweet. A quotation tweet allows you to share another person's tweet and remark on it. Retweets with comments are another term for quote tweets. There is no limit to how many you can give credit to.
People love quotes. Whether they're famous quotes or not, they make us think and feel something. That's why people re-share them on social media. With a quotation tweet, you can spread these thoughts and feelings even further by giving credit to the person who said it.
There are several ways to include a citation in a quotation tweet. You can simply add @username before the quoted text, where username is the name of the person or source that originally tweeted it. For example, if I wanted to quote my friend Emily who had shared this photo on Facebook:
I couldn't resist commenting on this picture she shared on Facebook. Lol. Photo taken at Disneyland. #disneyland
I would use the following format:
@emilybond We need more pictures of you eating food! #quotetwitter
Here is another way to include a citation in a quotation tweet: use the original tweet's URL.
Twitter stated on Wednesday that the quote tweet prompt would no longer be displayed automatically when you try to retweet something. The modification to how retweets function was originally made in October, just in time for the 2020 US presidential election.
According to research, tweet text with fewer than 50 characters creates 56% greater engagement than tweet copy with 50–100 characters. While Twitter requires succinct communications by definition, statistics reveals that punchy, rapidly absorbed messaging is the most resonant. Thus, the best tweets are concise but not terse.
Generally, great tweets fall into one of these categories: newsworthy topics that will attract attention, inspire conversation, or both; jokes/humor - even if it's yourself that you're joking about! ; personal stories about what's going on in your life; quotes from sources you admire; links to interesting articles/videos/photos. Although there are no limits to how many tweets you can send, most accounts limit themselves to 140 characters or less per message.
The best tweets make people laugh out loud, nod their heads in agreement, and make them want to retweet, like, or comment on it. To create such content, you need to know your audience and what they find interesting. Does your tweet benefit from a visual aid? If so, then include an image in your message. Is it time for someone to laugh at their own joke? Then use it!
Ultimately, a great tweet is one that speaks to its audience member directly, is informative, offers a solution, or makes them feel something. And above all, it must be concise.
Many Twitter users are perplexed by this, believing that they may just quote tweets now. This is not correct! Users can still retweet without quoting the tweet. Simply click the retweet button again, and the retweet will proceed normally.
There were a total of 339,289 tweets. There are 228,997 original tweets and 110,392 retweets among these tweets. Tweet Binder reports provide the user with not just basic statistics but also user rankings. These rankings are ideal for determining which kind of users are tweeting about the studied account. They can also help determine if the account is popular within certain categories such as sports teams, musicians, or politicians.
The top five accounts that retweeted @realDonaldTrump most are @POTUS, @WhiteHouse, @FLOTUS, @BarackObama, and @HillaryClinton. Trump used his official Twitter page (@realDonaldTrump) to share news from the White House and information about his administration. Thus, it isn't surprising that some of the most frequent retweeters are related to him. @POTUS is the official Twitter account of the President of the United States; @FLOTUS is the official Twitter account of the First Lady; @BarackObama is the former president of the United States; and @HillaryClinton is the former secretary of state and 2016 presidential candidate.
The top five accounts that tweeted most often are @POTUS, @FLOTUS, @BarackObama, @HillaryClinton, and @JoeBiden. Trump used his official Twitter page several times a day on average to share news from the White House and information about his administration.
The original tweet received about 215,000 likes and over 36,000 comments and retweets, sparking an intriguing conversation among Japanese netizens, who don't often get the chance to confront racism and prejudice. Utada responded to each comment and retweet, creating a thread of conversations that lasted for several hours.
In response to the most popular question "Hikaru, why are you only famous in Japan?", she tweeted: "Because I'm Japanese." The statement drew praise from her fans worldwide who recognized her musical talent even though it wasn't as popular in other countries.
Her next tweet answered another popular question: "Hikaru, how do you feel speaking English?" She replied, "I feel like I can communicate with everyone!"
Some Japanese Twitter users expressed their admiration for Utada's courage for addressing such issues head-on instead of avoiding them like many other celebrities who have tried but failed to gain recognition abroad. One user wrote, "It's amazing that someone so young has such an understanding of foreign cultures. I hope she has success overseas."
Another noted, "It's great that a talented musician is getting attention from people all over the world. I hope she does well in Japan too because there aren't that many artists here worth listening to."
