Twitter’s incredibly handy “Retweets with comments” feature is getting a rebranding, as well as becoming a tiny bit more convenient to use.

Earlier this year, Twitter added the option to see retweets that include a comment without having to use an automated account such as @QuotedReplies. Now the feature has been renamed, ditching the descriptive but clunky “Retweets with comments” for the cleaner “Quote Tweets.” 

Quote Tweets also appear between the Retweets and Likes on a tweet now, making the feature slightly less annoying to access. Previously, you had to click to see the Retweets, then click “Retweets with comments” from there. Now, you can just jump straight to the drama.

The update is live, with the official Twitter account announcing the changes on Monday. Also: “The mask goes over your nose.”

Twitter’s changes to “Retweets with comments” do a little to streamline the feature, which is appreciated. But the bigger value is in how much easier it now is to see if someone’s being ratioed at a glance.

More retweets than comments? Congrats on going viral. More quote retweets? Brace yourself.
