RT: “Twitter kind of screwed this one up.”

December 2, 2010

I find this video of Steve Martin, essentially getting tech support from an online radio show host, incredibly compelling.

Not least because Steve and the Tech Guy clearly demonstrate how awful Twitter’s new-style Retweet function is. No, let me correct that. It’s not so awful in itself, I often use it…it just that Twitter needs to bring back the old-style RT as an additional option…NOW! . ‘Quote tweet’, which places quotes around the entire message (username and all!) is an absolute dog of an alternative.

(Update: If you have Firefox, here’s the old-style RT add-on!) (via @DickMandrake)
