Twitter Starts Testing 'Bookmarks' Save for Later Feature

Twitter Starts Testing 'Bookmarks' Save for Later Feature

"We've made a decision to call our feature Bookmarks because that's a commonly used term for saving content and it fits nicely alongside the names of the other features in the navigation", Koyama tweeted.

Twitter is experimenting with a new feature that will show how many people are "talking about" individual, popular tweets.

Just over a month later, staff product designer at Twitter, Tina Koyama, gave details on the testing process the feature is now undergoing.

Bookmarks will allow users to privately save tweets for later. Twitter's product designer Tina Koyama tweeted a preview of what the feature looks like, with a bookmarks option listed on the user's navigation menu.

Koyama also tweeted that the company has worked on different versions of the feature and will now test those on different communities.

There is no official release date for the Bookmark feature as of yet. A panel pops up with a new "Add to Bookmarks" button, as well as the regular "Share via DM" option. However, it is a useful feature that we're sure that Twitter fans will take advantage of once it has been officially added to the app.

Currently, if you want to save a tweet, the only way you can do it is by hitting the like button and review your likes at a later time.

Today, you can by now use Twitter's Heart as a method of marking Tweets that you might prefer to come back to read once more later. Twitter is not giving anything away in terms of when Bookmarks might go public, but it would appear to be near to completion judging by the fact that it is now being openly discussed. While new character limit is yet to roll out to all the users, it has been now increased to a total of 50 characters.
