Twitter has put an end to its temporary measure of prompting quote tweets over typical retweets. While the number of quote tweets increased, 45% of users only wrote one word when using them.

Twitter has once again rounded up the latest changes made to its progressive web app over the past few weeks. These updates include a new retweet experience that promotes quote tweets.
After announcing the new features back in May, Twitter has finally announced the rollout of its new character limits, which are that media attachments and Quote Tweets won't count toward them.
Twitter will no longer count @names or media attachments as part of the 140-character limit; the '.@' requirement to reach all followers will be dropped; and users will be able to retweet themselves.
Twitter has finally stepped up and officially re-launched the quote tweet feature, which until now was mainly restricted to some mobile apps. Users can now RT and comment in context.
