Twitter Working on 'Save for Later' Feature for Bookmarking Tweets

Twitter is developing a new Save for Later feature that will allow users to bookmark tweets for later reference, a Twitter product manager announced today.

On Twitter, product manager Jesar Shah said Twitter began working on a Save for Later feature during a recent Hack Week. An accompanying video demoed the new bookmarking option, which offers an "Add to Bookmarks" tool for preserving tweets.


Shah says Twitter is aiming to build the bookmarking option with input from Twitter users, with Twitter planning to ask users for feedback as the company designs and experiments with the feature. Twitter users can offer feedback and comments using the hashtag #SaveForLater.

At the current time, Twitter has no official feature for keeping tweets to revisit. Twitter users use liking, retweeting, and self DMing as tweet saving methods right now, but a bookmarking option will make saving tweets for later reference much easier.

More information on the feature will be coming soon.

Bookmark tweets for later. When 140 characters is just too much to read right now.

Things Twitter should do:
1. Fight abuse and harassment
2. Let us edit tweets
3. Come up with a decent Watch app

What they need is the ability to "star" a tweet, and a list showing all your starred tweets... :rolleyes:

This is Twitter finally realising that this is one of the main things people were using the star for before they converted it to a heart/like.

Twitter is so ridiculously biased and censors “opposing” viewpoints to the extent it’s lost all credibility and nearly all use as a platform.

because it's so difficult to use Pocket or Reading List right now


Using those for tweets seems combursome. This is a great idea.
