Twitter could soon let you bookmark tweets to read later

According to Twitter's product head Keith Coleman, the company is working on a bookmarking feature that will allow users to pocket tweets.

According to Digital Trends, "News of the upcoming feature came directly from Twitter product manager Jesar Shah, who revealed on Monday that an early version had been developed at a recent Hack Week". But from now, Twitter users will be able to bookmark the tweets so they can do whatever they want with the bookmarked tweets. Twitter is making a "bookmark" tool that'll let you save posts for later.

The feature is in the experiment phase and the company is still looking for feedback as they share designs.

Though there are some other ways to save tweets but they are not so ideal and quick. They can also go through the slightly cumbersome task of direct messaging or emailing a tweet to themselves. But it is changing soon and there'll be a save button for your Tweets.

While a bookmarking feature would be nice to have, it's probably a niche addition that mostly affects Twitter's power users. You can choose from these options to a particular tweet.

Twitter's new bookmarking feature is going to tackle that problem. This is also Twitter we are talking about here, so the feature likely won't be available across all of your devices and on services like TweetDeck on day 1.

A prototype shared by Shah shows a new "bookmarks" feature that can be accessed by tapping the "more" menu - three buttons on Android, a downward arrow on iOS - in each tweet.

Facebook recently introduced a very similar tool, which you can use to bookmark status updates, videos, articles and pictures.

A save button is need of the hour as social media is full of random stories, statuses, and tweets.
