retweet-299x202Two days ago we brought you news of Twitter’s Retweet button disappearance.

We discovered, and then Twitter publicly announced,  that the feature had been removed due to bugs that needed to be resolved.

You’ll be glad to know the retweet functionality is officially back – at least to those of you had it before. For the rest of you, I’m afraid it’s a waiting game but Twitter assures us the rollout will continue shortly.

If you haven’t already, be sure to read our guide to how Twitter’s new retweet feature works and looks.

Update: We’re being told that the functionality has not returned for everyone who had it before.  Again, aside from waiting there’s not much we can say to help.
