From articles and threads to videos and GIFs, timelines are packed with Tweets that you don't always have time to fully explore in the moment. You’ve told us you want to save them for later.
Today, we’re introducing Bookmarks, an easy way to save Tweets for quick access later. But wait, there’s more! Today’s update makes sharing better, too. With our new “share” icon on every Tweet, you’ll be able to bookmark a Tweet, share via Direct Message, or share off of Twitter any number of ways. Because we put all sharing actions together in one place, it’s easier to save and share privately or publicly — in the moment, or later.
How It Works
To bookmark a Tweet, tap the share icon under the Tweet and select, “Add Tweet to Bookmarks”. To find it later, tap “Bookmarks” from your profile icon menu. You can remove Tweets from your Bookmarks at any time. Also, only you can see what you’ve bookmarked. Learn more about how to bookmark in our Help Center.
Bookmarks help people keep up with the best of Twitter. You can save a Tweet with a live morning show like Buzzfeed’s #AM2DM to watch at another time, bookmark a thread from @Lin_Manuel about new Hamilton music to come back to, and save Tweets with links to interesting articles for later reading or sharing. You’ll no doubt show us more creative uses for Bookmarks than we ever imagined! (You have a tendency to do that on Twitter.)
Better Because of Your Feedback
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.
Bookmarks are now rolling out globally on Twitter for iOS and Android, Twitter Lite, and mobile.twitter.com. Thanks for your collaboration to make Bookmarks happen. Happy bookmarking!
