Twitter is finally working on a “Save for Later” feature that will make it a lot easier to bookmark any tweets that you may want to reference in the future.
The news was revealed by Twitter’s product manager Jesar Shah during a recent Hack Week.
This should be super helpful and she tweeted out a video showing it in action.

Keith Coleman, Twitter’s VP of Product, says this has been a top feature request.
To preserve a tweet, tap an overflow icon and choose a new Add to Bookmarks option from the popup menu. All your saved tweets are bookmarked privately so only you can see them via a new Bookmarks section within Twitter’s mobile apps and on the web.
Shah didn’t provide a timeline when users could expect to start using this feature, but anyone is welcome to offer feedback and comments using the hashtag #SaveForLater.
This long overdue change will make saving tweets less cumbersome than workarounds such as liking a tweet, retweeting or sending a tweet to yourself in a Direct Message.
What’s your strategy at present for saving tweets for later?
