What is a quote retweet?
A quote tweet is a retweet with an added comment that allows you to add your own spin on the retweet while still giving the original post-exposure. It’s a great way to share other people’s content while supporting them and putting a little twist on it that’s all your own.
Unfortunately even with the latest Android update of Twitter we found the “Quote” button just pulls the entire tweet into quote marks ready to add or subtract copy before tweeting. Twitter says Android will get the update in the future.

Is it better to tweet or retweet?
Simply hitting the retweet button is best when you want to quickly share an idea and give credit to the author simultaneously. Retweets are ideal for: Quickly sharing a joke or piece of information that doesn’t need any additional commentary.
Can someone see if you quote their tweet?
If someone with a private Twitter account quoted your tweet, you won’t see it unless you follow that person. If you don’t see a Quote Tweets option below your tweet, nobody has quoted your tweet. You can still click or tap Retweets to see a list of people who’ve retweeted your tweet without adding their own thoughts.
