Twitter Developing 'Save for Later' Bookmark Feature

Twitter working on Save for Later feature

Twitter has confirmed that it's soon going to launch a new way to save tweets that you want to read later.

VP product Keith Coleman made the announcement with the hashtag "Saveforlater". During the recent hack week, Twitter has begun working on a Save for Later feature. With Twitter slowly expanding tweets to 280 characters and creating a tweetstorm feature, it could be helpful to have a place to put posts that contain lots of information. Twitter is looking to the community for guidance on the design before it finalizes the bookmarking feature. None of the above-mentioned methods are as convenient as clicking a button to save the tweet.

A few Twitter employees announced the upcoming feature that was piloted at the company's HackWeek, where employees brainstorm new ideas for the service.

Furthermore, they plan to offer a new overflow menu on the DM icon.

Sunny, high near 70 — TODAY'S FORECAST
Lows through this period will be in the mid-60s with partly cloudy conditions and have south winds at 5-10 miles per hour . South wind 10 to 13 miles per hour , with gusts as high as 22 miles per hour .

Currently, users have a few options to save tweets for later use. Now, a panel pops up with the new "Add to Bookmarks" button alongside the regular "Share via DM" button.

Shah also revealed that users now make do by Liking or sending tweets to themselves via DM. The new in-house option will most likely be the fastest process for storing tweets, allowing for a streamlined, private list not stored with a third party. On opening this, a menu opens where the bookmark option appears.

It seems as though many users are now bookmarking tweets instead of liking or retweeting them as they may not want to alert the original user but third-party bookmarking services such as Pocket require more effort.

To access something you've already saved, you have to navigate away from the main feed and open a section called Bookmarks.
