Twitter launches Bookmarks to save and share tweets

This update also makes sharing better, as the new “share” icon on every tweet enables people to bookmark a tweet, share via Direct Message, or share off of Twitter any number of ways.

Twitter today introduced Bookmarks, an easy way to save tweets for quick access later. This update also makes sharing better, as the new “share” icon on every Tweet enables people to bookmark a Tweet, share via Direct Message, or share off of Twitter any number of ways. With all the sharing actions together in one place, it’s easier to save and share privately or publicly — in the moment, or later.
To bookmark a Tweet, tap the share icon under the tweet and select, “Add Tweet to Bookmarks”. To find it later, tap “Bookmarks” from the profile icon menu. Tweets can also be removed from Bookmarks at any time, and only the individual user can see what they’ve bookmarked.

Bookmarks help people keep up with the best of Twitter. Save a tweet with a live morning show like Buzzfeed’s #AM2DM to watch at another time, bookmark a thread from @Lin_Manuel about new Hamilton music to come back to, and save tweets with links to interesting articles for later reading or sharing.

Twitter also tweeted ongoing updates as Bookmarks were being built in order to incorporate user input in the work process. By working this way, Twitter learned that people like to save replies to be able to answer later and that they may share a tweet hours or days later after they’ve bookmarked it. As a result, Bookmarks are now rolling out globally on Twitter for iOS and Android, Twitter Lite, and mobile.twitter.com and everyone will have an easier way to save, share, and stay informed.
