Twitter has introduced the new share icon, Bookmark feature. By official launch of a new Bookmarks feature, the social network is making it easy to save tweets so the users can read them later and to share them off the platform. Twitter Launches Bookmarks to Save Tweets.
During the company’s annual Hack Week activities in 2017, Twitter’s engineers started developing the tools and even finished working prototypes after the event. All tweets now feature an updated “share” icon that’s used for both bookmarking and sharing tweets. Twitter said that the share icon is meant to make it easier to save and share privately or publicly.
Twitter Launches Bookmarks to Save Tweets
By tapping the share icon under a tweet and then choosing the “Add Tweet to Bookmarks” option, users can now save it for later. All saved tweets are located under the “Bookmarks” option that can be accessed from a person’s profile icon menu.
Twitter said in a statement:
“We Tweeted ongoing updates as we built Bookmarks so we could incorporate your input as we worked. By working this way, we learned that you like to save replies so you can answer later and that you may share a Tweet hours or days later after you’ve bookmarked it. Thank you for being part of this process — your feedback was valuable in building this update, and it made it all the more fun for us as we built a new feature for you. As a result, we all have an easier way to save, share, and stay informed.”
The new tool is available to all users around the globe.
