Twitter provides a great platform for having meaningful conversations and discussions on various posts. You could comments, tweet, retweet or even quote any tweet if you find it of much significance. And in this guide, we will be discussing the latter. That is, through the given instructions, you could easily know who all have quoted a specific tweet. But before that, it is important to discuss the difference between quoted tweets and retweets on Twitter.
Retweets are simply the sharing of other tweets on your own page. So if you come across an interesting tweet and wish the followers should know about that too, you simply retweet it. In simple words, take it as a copy-paste of tweets from one location to another. Quoted tweets on Twitter, on the other hand, is somewhat different.
These kinds of tweets allow for further discussion and comments as well. So you could call quoted tweets as ‘retweet with comments’. It’s not that, you can’t comment on retweets. But any comment made on those will directly reach the original post and not the person who retweeted. However, with quoted tweets, you could start a fresh new conversation with the user who initiated this tweet.
Now that we have made the differences clear, let’s have a look at a handy trick to easily find any quoted tweets on Twitter. Also, check out our guide if you wish to disable Twitter and Facebook in-app browsers.
How to easily find Quoted Tweets on Twitter
Quoted tweets in Twitter is a great way of knowing the audience’s reactions regarding that subject. For example, if you find a particular tweet being quoted by quite a few, then it highlights the fact that these kinds of tweets are sure to generate much anticipation among the users. But not all quoted tweets may arouse favorable opinions. This is were its comments section comes in handy (something lacking in its counterpart, i.e retweets).
But here’s the catch. How could you know how many times a particular tweet has been quoted? You could easily see the number of comments, retweets, and likes to a tweet, but unfortunately the same can’t be said for quoted tweets on Twitter. This is where the below instructions will come in handy. So without further ado, let us begin with the instructions.

You’ll now get all the quoted tweets associated with that earlier tweet that you selected on Twitter. The Top category will show that quoted tweet with the most number of engagements (likes. comments, etc). The Latest section will arrange the tweets based on the recency factor (latest to earliest). Similarly, explore the People, Photos, and Videos to get associated images and videos of that quoted tweet on Twitter.

All you have to do is simply delete them and proceed ahead. So, what are your opinions on this trick? Do you regularly quote tweets or retweeting is more than sufficient?
