Yesterday we published our last update, including the new 'retweet' icon. This icon allows you to quote other people tweets, without having to write their @name and copy/paste the content of the tweet.
It has been a long awaited feature, asked for many of our users due to the increasing popularity of the 'retweet' practice.
At this moment it isn't supported natively by Twitter, so it doesn't exist an standard way of retweeting (like the @name for replies for instance). Most of people use the 'RT' or 'Retweet' convention, and in fact our first intention was to use 'RT' too, but then we heard about some alternatives that sounded interesting: the use of one single Unicode symbol to identify the retweets. Since we're using a communication system with one main limitation -140 characters-, it seems that makes sense to try to find the shorter way for all this stuff.
Following these recommendations we implemented the Unicode symbol for recycle: ?. It represents perfectly what retweet means and is only 1-char long. The problem: it doesn't work under some circumstances: Windows or iPhone, for instance. :-(
So... we have to find an alternative and need your help to choose the better one. Would you help us? We start: our vote is for » , other Unicode symbol, visible for major part of OSs.
