Why is my Echo content going out as Retweets?

Twitter has made some changes to their terms of service recently. These terms have disallowed repeating content, unless the content is being posted as Retweets. With this in mind, we have changed all Echo content to be posted as Retweets. Also, with this in mind, we are disallowing any edits on the content within the Queue that is set as a Retweet. Any edits will be ignored if you do change something within the Retweet.

This also means that Prefixes for your Echo content will be ignored for Twitter. Since Twitter is only allowing direct Retweets, we must post your content exactly as is, so no prefixes will be added.
