Twitter will soon let you save Tweets by bookmarking them

Twitter has now confirmed that it's planning to launch a bookmarking feature which will enable users to save tweets that they want to check out later. But when you want to save a tweet on Twitter, that can be hard. I eventually found it using some creative searches within Twitter, but it could have been a tap away had I been able to bookmark it when I first saw it. With Twitter slowly expanding tweets to 280 characters and creating a tweetstorm feature, it could be helpful to have a place to put posts that contain lots of information.

"Save it for later" would allow users to file a tweet away they intend to read later. This is also Twitter we are talking about here, so the feature likely won't be available across all of your devices and on services like TweetDeck on day 1.

Other employees from the social site also announced the ongoing progress to launch the new feature on Twitter. None of the above-mentioned methods are as convenient as clicking a button to save the tweet. A panel pops up with a new "Add to Bookmarks" button, as well as the regular "Share via DM" option. On opening this, a menu opens where the bookmark option appears. Existing methods of doing this include Direct Messaging themselves the tweet or retweeting, but this isn't ideal and could be much easier.

At the moment Twitter is experimenting with the feature, it's in initial stages and the social media app is looking for the response from the people as they show the designs and research on the feature.

Twitter's move to add bookmarking to its service comes just weeks after the company began to test longer tweets.

Additionally, you can get full access of all the bookmarked tweet with a list of tweets from the Settings option.
