That's terrible logic.

This implies one cannot quote someone without approving of their statement.

Why would you question him when you obviously agree with him?

The joke's on anyone who thinks that they're wrong. Twitter wants the traffic, quoting a tweet is publicity. No publicity is bad publicity.

A retweet without comment sure can look like an endorsement. A retweet with "get a load of this moran" is not.

so they have SLAPP in Japan, or is the writer a moran?

I don't care if retweet equals endorsement, but does service guarantee citizenship?

Which, according to the article, was the actual court decision.

I don't think any twitter users know an endorsement from a hole in the ground, this could cause them some problems.

Which actually sounds reasonable.

If you don't agree, add a message and don't merely repost what you disagree with. People who really know you might understand, but for the rest of us you're simply agreeing with the statement.
