Twitter is working on a 'save for later' button

Twitter to soon come out with an option to bookmark tweets to save them

Twitter to soon come out with an option to bookmark tweets to save them

The planned bookmarking feature follows Twitter's recent announcement that it's testing a 280 character limit for tweets, doubling the current 140 character limit.

At the Hack Week, Twitter has begun working on a prototype of this new feature. This new method will involve a single click to save the tweet, which lived in a tweet's "More" menu in the prototype model. This Twitter bookmarking feature will appear under the tweet's "More" menu, where users will find a new option that is "Add to Bookmarks". "We'll be Tweeting to ask for feedback, and share our thinking as we compare designs, experiment, do research, and more", Shah added, with emphasis. Apparently there is high demand from users for a way to easily and privately bookmark tweets to view later.

The company is still in the process of creating the feature, and has put out a call for people to submit suggestions through the #SaveforLater hashtag. "Been a top request", he tweeted. Right now, people bookmark Tweets by liking, DM-ing to themselves, or Retweeting. The difference is that this list was 100 per cent public, and since it became the like/heart button clicking it is just an indication that you like it - not that you want to save it for later.

According to Twitter product manager Jesar Shah, lots of users wanted to have an easier and private way of saving tweets for later, especially in Japan. So we need your help.

Though there are some other ways to save tweets but they are not so ideal and quick.

There's no timeline for the feature's launch but Twitter is seeking user feedback on the feature as it builds it.
