Twitter is planning to make a new addition to its platform. The social networking site is set to launch a bookmarking feature.
The new addition will allow Twitter to save tweets so that a user can read it later.
Till now users of the social media platform retweeted the tweets or used the "heart" button option to save a post for future reference. However, the "heart" button resembled more like an option and the retweet option was not that quick.
After the new feature is introduced, the users will be able to bookmark a post for future reference, instead of liking or retweeting it.
VP product Keith Coleman made the announcement with the hashtag "Saveforlater".
?????Fresh out of HackWeek and coming soon — a new way to save tweets to read later. Been a top request (??????!) The team would love your feedback as they dial in the design! #SaveForLater ?? https://t.co/6oo2lhqFbW— Keith Coleman ?????? (@kcoleman) October 10, 2017
Other employees from the social site also announced the ongoing progress to launch the new feature on Twitter.
Hi Twitter! Many of you (especially in Japan!) have said you’d like to be able to easily + privately save Tweets for later. Right now, people bookmark Tweets by liking, DM-ing to themselves, or Retweeting. But this could be easier. https://t.co/iQ9W9mB1uV— jesar ?? (@jesarshah) October 9, 2017
The prototype shown below indicates the possible bookmark feature, which is likely to change.
