Twitter is reportedly testing a new feature that allows users to save tweets for later. The feature is called Bookmarks, and was revealed by Tina Koyama, staff product designer at Twitter.
Koyama tweeted a sneak peek at the feature, with a picture that shows the Bookmarks tab on the left slide out menu inside the Twitter app.
“News from the #SaveForLater team! We’ve decided to call our feature Bookmarks because that's a commonly used term for saving content and it fits nicely alongside the names of the other features in the navigation,” Koyama wrote alongside the picture. “We went through all the designed flows and picked the ones that are the easiest to navigate to test out with our community,” she added.
A save for later feature has been widely requested by Twitter users. The company said that the company has been making changes to the platform for a while now, though it has still been struggling to keep users interested. However, the company just allowed a larger character limit on tweets, which has been accepted by most users. Save for later should make it simpler to navigate and use Twitter, though we don’t yet have a timeline on when the feature will be actually available.
