I spend a ton of time on Twitter. At least once a day, most of the time more, a friend or someone I follow tweets out something I want to check out but don’t have time to right now.
Sometimes it’s an awesome article I want to read, but can’t while I’m in the supermarket line, or a deal I want to take a closer look at when I’m back in front of my desk. My typical move is to email these to myself so I can see them later. However, this week Twitter released a new life-changing (for me) feature that allows users to privately save tweets called Bookmarks.
The idea here is pretty much exactly the same as any other bookmarking feature. When you come across a tweet you want to look at later, click the share button at the bottom and then select “Add Tweet to Bookmarks” from the pop-up menu.
For now, the feature is only available within Twitter’s app, which is honestly where I find myself wanting it.
Later, when you want to access the tweets you’ve saved, you can find them by tapping your profile icon, and then the “Bookmarks” tab that appears below Profile, Lists, and Moments on the Sidebar.
You have to access all those saved tweets using the app as well, there’s not access on desktop, which is kind of annoying. It’s still a heck of a lot easier than emailing everything to yourself on the fly and hoping your email doesn’t get buried in your inbox before you have time to read it.
