New Feature In Twitter: Untweet Your Retweet

Twitter has been making a lot of changes to the activity stream of their wildly popular social network. Today I noticed as I was mousing over my replies that it is now possible to “untweet” a RT that you’ve shared with your followers.

It’s been possible to delete your own tweets from Twitter but the ability to “take back” a RT is an interesting twist.

Remember though if you’re pushing your tweets out to other social networks like Facebook, you’ll need to manually remove the tweet there yourself!
