Twitter, the micro-blogging site, has launched a new feature, 're-tweet with comment', which lets users add a tweet to their own tweets, which let users say more about the original message.

According to the TechCrunch web site, this new feature will allow users to add 116 characters of additional commentary to the existing 140-character limit for a quoted tweet.

Previously, Twitter let users embedded quoted tweets by cutting-and-pasting its URL, but 'retweet and comment' lets you do that by just pressing a button.

Users, however, cannot embed the full re-tweet and comment.

The feature is now available on Twitter's site and iPhone app and will soon be available on its Android app.
