I as wondering if anyone knows a greasemonkey script which would add a "retweet with comment" to the timelime items. I was looking for something that would have a similar appearance to tweetfilter, with the little buttons added at the end of the tweet.

This Greasemonkey script adds a RT link to all tweets on Twitter.com

It adds the current tweet text in to to your new tweet box prefixed with RT - this will then enable you to add comments to the tweet before posting.

Other third party applications have this functionality built in. For example, Seesmic Desktop 2 has a Quote option which does the same thing.

Yeah, I have this on my Android phone in tweetcaster. But I was looking for one to work on the website. This is exactly what I was looking for ... thanks! – eidylon Feb 10 '11 at 18:51
The really weird thing is that the official twitter android app has this too. But not the website! – AakashM Jun 21 '12 at 14:50
