Twitter announced it’s currently experimenting with “Tweet Takes” — the ability to respond to tweets with a video or photo.
Selected iOS users can test the feature by tapping the Retweet icon, selecting Quote Tweet with reaction and then creating their own Tweet Take.
“We want to give you more creative ways to join the conversation and express yourself on Twitter,” says Sam Haveson, senior product manager at Twitter, in a recent post.
We want to give you more creative ways to join the conversation and express yourself on Twitter. Starting today, we’re rolling out a test on iOS that gives you the option to Quote Tweet with a reaction video (or photo) with your very own Tweet Take.
