If only Twitter actually offered such a feature…

A Big Solution to a Small Problem

In October, Twitter’s developers started working on a bookmarking feature that would let you save tweets for future reference. This was in response to growing demand for such a feature, as currently users are forced to either Like a tweet or DM it to themselves in order to save it.

Now, those same developers have turned their prototype into a working feature, and is actively testing it out. Called simply Bookmarks, the feature will let you save any and all tweets you deem worthy of saving for later. And they will all be added to a private tab only you can see.

The process of saving a tweet for later looks as simple as any other action on Twitter. You’ll simply click on the bottom corner of a tweet, and click the Add to Bookmarks option that appears. To see your bookmarked tweets you’ll just navigate to the appropriate tab marked Bookmarks.


Making your list of bookmarked tweets private is a good step. Because Liking a tweet notifies the person who wrote it, and puts it on your timeline. Which, if you’re bookmarking a tweet for negative reasons, isn’t ideal. This offers an actual, usable, solution to the problem.

    I have accomplished the same thing with IFTTT. If I "Like" a tweet, then my task app creates a new task that says, "Read this favorited tweet." In the note section of the task is a link to the original tweet. I like this arrangement because I don't have to remember to go somewhere else. Everything feeds my task list.
