We know that things change all the time. Change affects everything, big and small. In this case, the days of retweeting may be flying out the window, never to be seen or heard from again. Twitter has been doing some testing lately that has seen replacing “Retweet” with “Share”.
This isn’t going to be the first time Twitter has been trying some new things with their social service. “Views” were spotted last week, and it seems that yesterday, tagging was introduced without adding a Twitter handle in the Tweet.
The reason behind the change from retweet to share is due to studies that have been done saying that a number of users are finding Twitter too difficult to understand. The experiment that Twitter has been up to with their retweet/share change is to get new users to have an easier time with Twitter.
