Twitter Developing 'Save for Later' Bookmark Feature

Twitter to soon come out with an option to bookmark tweets to save them

Trending as #SaveForLater, a dedicated option to save tweets and return to them would be coming soon.

In a series of tweets posted on Monday night in the US, Coleman and product manager Jesar Shah said that the bookmarking feature has always been a top request, especially in Japan.

According to Shah, who shared the news on Twitter today, the company is reportedly working on a new "Save for Later" feature which could be introduced at a later stage. After getting tons of requests for a "Save for Later" feature, Twitterhas finally started developing a Bookmarking tool during its annual Hack Week activities. A panel pops up with a new "Add to Bookmarks" button, as well as the regular "Share via DM" option. Existing methods of doing this include Direct Messaging themselves the tweet or retweeting, but this isn't ideal and could be much easier.

"Hi Twitter! Many of you (especially in Japan!) have said you'd like to be able to easily + privately save Tweets for later".

Apparently this is a feature that a lot of people have been asking for, particularly in Japan, and it's created to make it far easier to save tweets.


The feature is in the experiment phase and the company is still looking for feedback as they share designs. The team will be monitoring the #SaveForLater hashtag.

Changes to Twitter's timeline also means "liked" tweets actually show up in other people's timelines. So we need your help.

At the end of last month Twitter announced more changes to their social network, saying they were testing doubling the character limit of tweets with some accounts.

In many ways Twitter already has a bookmarking feature. That's interesting, given that building "with" user input is how Twitter used to develop features borrowed from the community.
