Old School Style Retweets Via Kynetx App

Twitter came out with a new web interface… great! Ooooh! A retweet button. Wait!! What is this? Gah!

I think the native retweet is great sometimes and other times it just doesn’t fit. I got really sick of doing the copy and paste dance so I built a Kynetx app that adds the “RT” functionality that I want. The RT doesn’t automatically get sent out because often times I need to shorten up  because it doesn’t fit within the 140 character limit.
