Through a post on its official blog, Twitter has announced ‘Bookmarks’ a new feature which has been in testing since last year. Bookmarks allows users to save tweets that they want to check at a later time.
Up until now, you had to resort to all sorts of workarounds to save interesting tweets. Liking, DM-ing it to yourself, or retweeting it to save them in your profile. Of course all that’s going change with the introduction of Bookmarks.

As part of the process, the company is rolling out a new ‘Share’ icon that will house the Bookmark menu, under every message. “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”, wrote Jesar Shah, an associate product manager at the micro-blogging platform.
Choose ‘Add Tweet to Bookmarks’ from among the available sharing options, and then tap on ‘Bookmarks’ from your profile icon menu to see the tweets. Of course you can also remove the bookmarks at any time without any issues.
According to Twitter, the feature is now rolling out globally for the iOS and Android apps, Twitter Lite, and the mobile site, but it isn’t immediately clear if it will also be rolled out to the desktop web client at some stage.
