See my twitter stream here.
In the original format when someone retweeted you, it would appear as a mention (i.e. RT @KyEkinci) immediately on your radar. The new retweet format doesn't have that ability to signal the original twitterrer.
Why is so important to know who retweeted you? Because it is!
Well, obviously it is important, that now Twitter recognized the shortcoming of the new retweet format, and announced that they are enabling email notifications for those who retweet you as well as those who favorite your tweets.
As someone who doesn't want to get many emails (I get enough), I will not utilize this feature; but it's a positive step to recognize an issue, and try to fix it. A better fix would have been a standalone "retweet" notification on twitter and hootsuite, and tweetdeck etc. -- you get the idea.
