I believe a lot of people have been expecting tweeter to implement this feature, and now it
appears twitter is currently testing this new feature on android. According to Jane Manchun Wong, reverse engineering expert, who reports unannounced features of several apps, has now managed to find something inside Twitter’s Android app as well.
He also said Twitter is testing a certain way to show “Retweets with comments” as well. Of course, this new option will also include the count just like we see in the other two options – number of Retweets and number of Likes
As the feature is self-explanatory, it will let you see those retweets that have been made together with comments.
Twitter is testing to show a separate “x Retweets with comments” row
They are also implementing the tabbed Retweets page for Android, so that’s pretty sweet 🙂 pic.twitter.com/PBE9cgvPSX

From the tweet shared by Jane, the new option will join space with other existing options which are x amount of Retweets and y amount of Likes. Retweets with comments will join as a third option in an existing row which is shown above four actions – Comments, Retweets, Likes, and Share.
This feature is going to be really helpful as users will be able to see the retweets with interesting comments without leaving their tweet which is bringing some engagement and impressions. Currently, we have to open each and everyone to see retweets with comments.
On Android, Twitter appears to be also adding a tabbed Retweets page for switching between the views easily.
Note that these changes are already available on iOS and according to Jane, it should soon come to Twitter’s Android app as well soon.
