A handful of hours ago, Twitter rolled out its new "revamped quote" functionality. Predictably, bloggers immediately began using the new feature, while at the same time sharing their pointed critiques with followers. So, given this vast pool of bloggy commentary, we've selected only the choicest tweets for inclusion in today's all-Twitter edition of IT Blogwatch.
In IT Blogwatch, bloggers make comments about comments.
Today's humble blogwatcher is Stephen Glasskeys.
