No they don't. If they want to comment on it, let them write a comment and post an URL to the original message. If you could add a comment to an RT and someone "favorites" that, who does the favorite go to? This way the recipient is clear: it should go to the person who originally said it. > And removing the retweets if someone deletes the original tweet?! No > way.

Fortunately Twitter doesn't think you own the right to control someone else's words just because you repeat them. Personally I've never really understood 99% of the RTs, especially when someone with 50 followers RTs something that someone with 600k followers said, but that's also beside the point.
