What is a retweet?

A Retweet is a re-posting of a Tweet. Twitter's Retweet feature helps you and others quickly share that Tweet with all of your followers. You can Retweet your own Tweets or Tweets from someone else.
Sometimes people type "RT" at the beginning of a Tweet to indicate that they are re-posting someone else's content. This isn't an official Twitter command or feature, but signifies that they are quoting another person's Tweet.

What is a quote retweet?

On Twitter, you're not just limited to sharing your own tweets. You can also share other people's tweets by retweeting. A retweet is just sharing another person's tweet on your own Twitter page, usually so others (your followers) can view the tweet as well.

A Quote Retweet is very similar to a Retweet.

While a simple retweet merely shares another person's tweet, a Quote Retweet lets you share another person's tweet and add your own comments to it.

Quote Retweets are sometimes also referred to as a "Retweet with comment." How to use Quote Retweets in Hypefury is explained in another helpdesk article.
