Twitter Testing Revamped Desktop Site With Bookmarks Integration

Twitter is testing an updated version of its desktop site that includes a new Bookmarks feature, the company outlined in a tweet earlier today.

Bookmarks is a feature that was added to the mobile version of Twitter earlier this year but has yet to make its way to the desktop. The Bookmarks option is designed to allow users to save tweets for later access.

The new desktop site also includes some refinements to the design, with details shared by Business Insider and TechCrunch. There are new toggles for activating Night Mode and Data Saver from the profile page, and Trending Now and profile sections have been relocated from one side of the page to the other for a cleaner two-column look. Twitter has also redesigned the tweet composing window.


According to Twitter, the design is a "limited test for now" and not everyone will see the revamped site. Those who are able to try out the site will see an opt-in popup and are able to go back to the "legacy" site at any time in the Settings options.

Tweetbot can't live without Twitter...

I think it’s the opposite. Twitter can’t survive without third party apps.

Nice addition. In the past people used the 'Like' as a bookmark to come back to a tweet later. It wasn't an indication that they actually liked the tweet. This threw off analytics for companies who used it as a measure of how their audience responded to the post.

It's much nicer that bookmarks aren't public too. So you can mark anything you'd like to come back to without fear that others will think you're endorsing it or into something strange/questionable/taboo/etc.

Twitter needs to let third party developers take over and just become a backend service. Their native apps suck.
