I see that articles now have Twitter based comments. However, all I see are what looks like a bunch of re-tweets. I rarely see any real comments and they are hard to spot through all the re-tweets. Do I need a twitter account to see the actual comments? Is there anything I am doing wrong? It does not seem very useful to have a long list of twitter account re-tweets at the bottom of each article. Here is an example.

At the bottom of this article I see "Install All Of Your Apks – All At Once From The Comfort Of Your PC" posted over and over again.
Thanks,
Akh

It's been like that for a while. It's showing the retweets, and you don't need a twitter account to see comments. They appear in the same area but there's not as many

This is common everywhere now. Like the OP, i don't see the point, and i don't understand Twitter well enough to understand why this happens :confused:
