Twitter Plans to Launch Bookmarking Feature for Tweets

 

Faizel Patel, Radio Islam News – 10-10-2017

Social media site Twitter has confirmed it’s planning to launch a bookmarking feature to save tweets for later reading.

The new addition will help users keep a separate list of items they want to refer back to, instead of using the heart (aka “favorite”) button, which can indicate more of a “like” – similar to the “thumbs up” button on Facebook.

TecCrunch reports the feature’s impending launch was first unveiled on Twitter itself when head of product Keith Coleman announced that a new way to save tweets was in the works, as a result of a company HackWeek project dubbed #SaveForLater.

Other Twitter employees, including newly hired senior director of product, Sriram Krishnan, and PM Jesar Shah, also noted Twitter’s plans in this area.

Like Coleman, Shah said the feature was a popular user request – adding that many people, “especially in Japan,” had asked for this ability.

Twitter isn’t the first to realize that its constantly-updating feed needs a save button. Facebook, too, launched its own bookmarking tool several years ago.

A prototype built during HackWeek shows that Twitter’s bookmarking feature appears under the tweet’s “More” menu (three dots), where you then find a new “Add to Bookmarks” option. But this design could change by the time it’s released to the public.

There are no details yet on how soon the new bookmarking tool will roll out or who will be able to test it. But a Twitter spokesperson confirmed the feature is not just an experiment – it will publicly launch soon
