I have a search functionality for tweets and I want to provide a modified tweet button in a web application for the search results. Basically, it will be a tweet intent. I will prepend the phrase “via @myusername” to the end of the original tweet and the user will be able to modify the text and submit it.
Is it OK to use the retweet button for this intent (it’s not strictly the official retweet, and the text is a bit modified). If not, which icon should I use, reply?
