Twitter Wants You to Think Before You Retweet

Twitter (NYSE: TWTR) wants you to take a moment to think about what you're retweeting, at least until the election is over. The social media platform says it added "friction" to the process of retweeting that impedes a user's ability to immediately share a tweet. After clicking on the retweet icon, the Quote Tweet dialogue box now opens to encourage you to add something to what you're retweeting.
