Twitter Testing all-new Feature - Bookmarks, Might Release Soon

Microblogging site Twitter is now in the testing phase for its "Bookmarks" feature, to enable users to keep a note of specific tweets for later use.

Just over a month later, staff product designer at Twitter, Tina Koyama, gave details on the testing process the feature is now undergoing. Called "Bookmarks", the feature is aimed at helping its 330 million monthly active users privately flag tweets for personal viewing at their convenience.

Back to this week's announcement - late on Thursday, Tina Koyama, a staff product designer at the company, tweeted, "News from the #SaveForLater team!" The social media giant had announced in October that it's working on the feature. "We kept this in mind while creating designs for the feature", she tweeted. There is no way right now to separate the tweets that your want to read later.

Koyama also tweeted that the company has worked on different versions of the feature and will now test those on different communities.

Last month, Vice President of Product Keith Coleman had tweeted, "Fresh out of HackWeek and coming soon - a new way to save tweets to read later". The team would love your feedback as they dial in the design!

Twitter's simplification of this particular information, especially in embeds where new users or advertisers who aren't as familiar with the platform are more likely to stumble upon them, is a smart way to make its internal success measure more externally relatable. But the primary function of Twitter's Heart is to inform sender that someone likes their tweet.

Twitter refused to remark beyond the Tweets. While new character limit is yet to roll out to all the users, it has been now increased to a total of 50 characters.
