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?

    Fine for some, but the only good method for me is to archive and save offline. Things get deleted far too quickly these days. Whether that be by the tweeter or by twitter.
