If you love hanging out on Twitter, then the retweet function should already become your second nature. Hence, you should already know the differences between a normal retweet and a retweet with comments.
Prior to this, Twitter generally labels them as Retweets despite their differences. But now, the company has separated them apart with the latter being called Quote Retweet.
Tweets about a Tweet add more to the conversation, so we’ve made them even easier to find.
Retweets with comments are now called Quote Tweets and they've joined the Tweet detail view. Tap into a Tweet, then tap "Quote Tweets" to see them all in one place. pic.twitter.com/kMqea6AC80

In a 36 second video posted by Twitter’s Support team, the company posted a video to introduce this feature for all of its users. The new Quote Tweets is readily available through Twitter’s website but if you haven’t seen it in your mobile app, make sure that you have downloaded the latest version of the Twitter app from Google Play or iOS App Store.
In order to try it out, you can do so by finding a tweet posted by a user of your choice or even your own tweets and tap on Quote Tweets (if available) which will then reveal a list of retweeted posts with comments made by other users.
