Can’t Find Your Retweets On The New Twitter.com? Here’s How To Get The Old Ones Back

Last week Twitter unveiled a brand new user interface on Twitter.com, which included a number of changes to the way Twitter looks and feels. The company introduced a range of different icons to standardize their brand across all of their official products, including web, Twitter for iPhone, Android and TweetDeck.

The revamp also included some feature re-arranging which has confused many users. Direct messages (which Twitter claims aren’t very popular) have been almost hidden away,  and the three retweet folders have gone completely. Instead, you’ll find your retweets in your Connect folder, under Interactions, and the retweets of the people you follow are hidden away in the Activity tab (which is now buried under Discover).

So how do you get your old retweets back?

It’s actually very simple. While Twitter has rolled out a completely new user interface, some elements of the previous design are still in place, and that includes two of the three retweet folders we used to enjoy.

To access these, simply log on to Twitter.com and click on any of these links (or when you’ve clicked on the first link, click on any of the retweet tabs). Note that when you do this you’ll revert back to a version of Twitter.com from several designs ago – this isn’t permanent and when you click on any other link on the page you’ll see the new Twitter design once again.

Your Tweets, Retweeted

This shows which tweets of yours have been retweeted by others.

Retweets By Others

This shows the retweets from the people you are following.

Retweets By You

This used to show retweets you had made yourself, but it no longer seems to work.

Still, two out of three ain’t bad. No word on how long this will remain active before Twitter removes it completely, so enjoy it while you can.
