#Saveforlater: Twitter to soon introduce bookmarking feature

Now, Twitter is testing a new Save for Later feature which will allow users to save Tweets as bookmark to use it whenever you want. At present, if you want to save a tweet for later, you have to either message it to yourself or Like it.

Until now, users only have 3 options to save a Tweet. In late September, Twitter announced that it would test 280-character tweets with some of its users, effectively doubling their character limit for each and every tweet.

Product manager Jesar Shah stated that Twitter started working on a Save for Later feature.

Coleman says this feature has been a "top request" and Twitter is looking for user feedback before pushing it out to a wider audience.

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 product manager of Twitter, Jesar Shah has also shared a quick demo regarding this new Save for Later feature which you can find out in the above tweets which was shared by him through his own Twitter handle. As revealed, the traditional "send via DM" will be deprecated, and replaced with an overflow menu that reveals the aforementioned feature, and the new "Add to Bookmark" option.

Upon saving, a snack bar appears with a shortcut to quickly "View Bookmarks".

Shah also revealed that users now make do by Liking or sending tweets to themselves via DM.

Currently, users have a few options to save tweets for later use.

In a previous update, the company has also made changes to the notifications tab and it shows other information in addition to likes, retweets and mentions, such as people included in your Twitter network.

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