More space for quote tweet feature

Twitter has overhauled its "frustrating" quote tweet feature to allow people to say more about text they want to comment on.

The social media giant had faced criticism that users barely had any characters left to add a comment when they quoted a tweet because of the 140-character limit.

The upgrade announced today allows users to add an extra 116 characters to any tweet and embeds the quoted tweet within the message.

The new feature is available on iPhone and the web, while Android users can access it in the near future, Twitter said.

Social media expert Warren Knight said: "It was frustrating so it's good it's been resolved. I know Twitter has been looking at the platform recently and little additions like this are very beneficial.

"Time will tell who benefits most. It will be interesting to see how businesses utilise it."
