@Gargron (also, now that I notice: could you make it possible to drag an URL into the search box? That would be useful quoting or not)
@espectalll Like, having it be included in the UI as a button, so that more people can do it without any thought or extra work.
@trwnh I personally think the worst part of quoting on Twitter is sending a notification to the author of the quoted tweet - it'd probably not be a bad thing for anyone if it's made in a way that makes you only talk to your followers.
@trwnh Yes, I know, toxic behavior, sure. I'm still unsure. Oh well.
@espectalll Well, it almost seems worse to NOT notify you when someone is talking about you -- the easiest answer is to make it non-obvious. Toots already show previews, so you can still talk about it to your followers, but that makes it a conscious decision rather than something you do absent-mindedly.
@espectalll How do you do that?
@MPurpureus On a toot, right-click on its time tag. Copy the link and paste it into a new toot.
@espectalll That's what I thought, but it seemed like the wrong way to do it
@MPurpureus Welp, there's no other "right way" if Gargron doesn't want to implement it.
