Twitter working on a new bookmarking feature for tweets

Twitter working on a new bookmarking feature for tweets”

Twitter is keen to keep growing its user base and isn't afraid to introduce new features that will encourage that growth. But when you want to save a tweet on Twitter, that can be hard. This feature will let users create a separate list of tweets that they can refer back to. In late September, Twitter announced that it would test 280-character tweets with some of its users, effectively doubling their character limit for each and every tweet. This interaction basically indicates that they liked the tweet so the bookmarking feature will be good for simply saving tweets for later reading without having to give the impression of liking that particular tweet.

Being world's most popular microblogging website, Twitter is getting a lot of new features to its app. "We'll be tweeting to ask for feedback, and share our thinking as we compare designs, experiment, do research, and more", she wrote, encouraging users to chime in using the hash tag #Saveforlater.

These methods are not ideal as they're not as fast as just clicking a button to save the tweet, with the exception of the "heart" feature. The "send via DM" option is expected to be replaced by an overflow menu that reveals a similar feature.

Theresa May's speech proves she has learnt nothing from her disastrous election
Under party rules, if 48 Tory lawmakers write letters calling for May to resign, a leadership contest is triggered. That said, Ed Vaizey has claimed "quite a few" MPs want her to go.

Shah said that, users uses many ways to privately save tweets to reference later, like bookmarking them with the heart, DM-ing them to themselves, or even they re-tweet them.

I can see Save For Later becoming as popular as the Like option on tweets.

What's key for Twitter to get right is the interface for viewing saved tweets.

There's no timeline for the feature's launch but Twitter is seeking user feedback on the feature as it builds it.
