So let's say you have received a tweet from your cousin's best friend's dental hygienist's step son. In other words, it isn't an urgent bit of communications and in fact, you'd rather save it to read later. Right now, hitting the "Like" button is the only way to save the tweet, and by clicking on "Like," you might be giving a false impression about how you feel about this particular tweet.
Twitter has come up with a new feature called "Bookmarks" that will appear in the lists on the sidebar. In a demo that Twitter demonstrated last month, the user pressed the "..." icon and clicked on 'add to bookmarks.' That saved the tweet until the user was ready to read it.
"We went through all the designed flows and picked the ones that are the easiest to navigate to test out with our community. You told us that you want tweets you’ve bookmarked to be private, so only you can see it. We kept this in mind while creating designs for the feature."-Tina Koyama, staff product designer, Twitter
At this point in time, there is no word on when we might see Bookmarks rollout to Twitter users world-wide. However, it is a useful feature that we're sure that Twitter fans will take advantage of once it has been officially added to the app.
