Support Twitter's native retweet feature
Support Twitter's native re-tweet feature, which explicitly tracks re-tweets and allows retweeting the full 140 chars - instead of the current hack of "RT " followed by an @mention followed by part of the original tweet.
That’s a great suggestion and we are looking into this right now. I think it would absolutely be great to be able to retweet natively and I think it’ll be very powerful also. This is very high up on our list, I will be sure to keep you posted on this here!
Please feel free to give me a shout here or on Twitter @bufferapp any time! :)

I got a tweet regarding this feature and how it should be possible now via the Chrome extension, but it still shows up as an "old-school" RT. Am I missing something?
PS: I have actually not used buffer, pretty much since I discovered it two years ago, because of this.
Yeah, what Alex said. Come Buffer, this is pretty lame.

Waiting... when you have this, I'm finally going to use Buffer A LOT. ;)
The problem with the buffer RT is that the original Tweet's icon is replaced by the retweeter's which is not very friendly. The only reason I use the buffer RT is to track clicks on my RT. I would much rather give credit to the originator by using their icon. Please offer this!!
Agree! I actually prefer the new RT style vs old gobbly-gook look.
I like the ability to use RT through buffer, so if supporting native re-tweet, please keep the current system as an option.
Awesome. Please also keep the current 'RT' @mention system, with the option to use twitter's native system, or vice-versa

This would be super handy.

We DEFINITELY need this. As soon as you guys add this, I'd sure as heck use the service.

Got my vote!
I wonder why they won't implement this. It's so easy.
I really hate the fake RT retweets. Considering not using bufferapp for retweets any longer.
AGREE SO MUCH.
