Twitter Bookmarks, an easy way to save Tweets for quick access later was introduced today. This update makes sharing better, as the new “share” icon on every Tweet enables people to bookmark a Tweet.
It allows users to share via Direct Message, or share off of Twitter any number of ways. With all the sharing actions together in one place, it’s easier to save and share privately or publicly — in the moment, or later. Twitter Bookmarks can be used by tapping the share icon under the Tweet and select, “Add Tweet to Bookmarks”.
To find it later, tap “Bookmarks” from the profile icon menu. Tweets can also be removed from Bookmarks at any time, and only the individual user can see what they’ve bookmarked. Learn more about how to bookmark in the Help Center.
Twitter Bookmarks help people keep up with the best of the microblogging platform.
Save a Tweet with a live morning show like Buzzfeed’s #AM2DM to watch at another time, bookmark a thread from @Lin_Manuel about new Hamilton music to come back to, and save Tweets with links to interesting articles for later reading or sharing.
Twitter also Tweeted ongoing updates as the company says they built Bookmarks in order to incorporate user input in the work process.
By working this way, Twitter learned that people like to save replies to be able to answer later and that they may share a Tweet hours or days later after they’ve bookmarked it.
Twitter Bookmarks are rolling out globally on Twitter for iOS and Android, Twitter Lite, and mobile.twitter.com
