Retweets ThrededTweet-style

March 24, 2010

So here’s what I settled on for representing new-style retweets in ThrededTweet. Guess which is the retweet:

I didn’t make that hard, did I?  Here’s what it looks like when you look at a retweet directly:

I like this because the addition of the picture gives an instant visual clue that this is a retweet (there is no picture there, normally). Clicking on the user icon at the bottom would open up @rschu’s user information, not @dane’s, so you can look at his tweets directly, or start following him, if you wish.

This will all be in ThrededTweet 1.3.0, which I uploaded to the App Store for approval tonight. Apple has really sped up approval times, so hopefully it will be available later this week.

So, I’ve settled on “Retweet (old-style)” old-style, “RT” retweeting, and “Retweet to Friends” for new-style retweeting:

However, that’s still not satisfying, so I’ve added an alert that pops up before a “Retweet to Friends” is completed:

But since would be annoying to tap-through before every retweet, it will only appear the first two times a user does a new-style retweet.
