A new bookmarking feature has been launched by Twitter for tweets. This feature was in testing mode on iOS for short duration but now it is officially released for both platforms today. You can now save tweets in the ‘Bookmarks’ section and read them later.
With the new “share” icon on every Tweet, the users will be able to bookmark a tweet, share via Direct Message, or Share off of Twitter in a number of ways.
Jesar Shah (Product Manager at Twitter) mentioned in a post on Thursday that — “Because we put all sharing actions together in one place, it’s easier to save and share privately or publicly — in the moment, or later,”
How this Feature Works?
This feature is very easy to use and is found under the ‘Share’ tool present below the tweets. If you want to bookmark a tweet, tap that share icon under the tweet and select from the options — “Add Tweet to Bookmarks”.
To find it later, tap “Bookmarks” from your profile icon menu.
You can remove tweets from your Bookmarks at any time. Also, only you can see the lists of items you’ve bookmarked.
Jesar Shah also stated that — “We tweeted ongoing updates as we built Bookmarks so we could incorporate your input as we worked. By working this way, we learned that you like to save replies so you can answer later and that you may share Tweet hours or days later after you’ve bookmarked it,”
Bookmarks feature is rolling out globally on Twitter for Android and iOS
Twitter had announced in October of 2017 the team is developing a Bookmarking feature to save tweets.
The nice thing about the bookmarks is that they get synced across devices, so if you have more than one phone, adding tweets to bookmarks on one device will sync them across both devices.
