If you use Tweetbot for the Mac, you will be happy to know that version 2.0.1 will now support Twitter’s new tweet quote functionality and also the longer Direct Message length.

For the retweet option, you will now have the option to quote a users tweet.

As mentioned in this blog post, Twitter users can now send direct messages with up to 10,000 characters.
