Twitter will soon let you save Tweets by bookmarking them

In fact, this Save for Later was the most demanded feature which is being tested.

According to an announcement by Twitter vice president of product Keith Coleman, the development was a part of a recent Twitter HackWeek, a week focused on creating new ideas for the company.

Twitter product manager Jesar Shah unveiled this feature informing that many users, especially in Japan want the feature on Twitter through which they can simply and privately save Tweets for later usage.

The company is also expected to implement new safety updates, which will highlight tweets with hate speech. You can find out the Tweets from here.

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.

Twitter has been experimenting and adding features lately to keep itself relevant among the users.

Twitter is working on a way to bookmark tweets, and revisit them at a later time.

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 feature's imminent launch was first announced on Twitter itself.

Apparently, they plan to replace the "send via DM" icon on the bottom right portion of tweets with an overflow menu. Now, a panel pops up with the new "Add to Bookmarks" button alongside the regular "Share via DM" button.

I can see Save For Later becoming as popular as the Like option on tweets. They can also go through the slightly cumbersome task of direct messaging or emailing a tweet to themselves.

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.
