In its recent Hackathon event, Developers behind Twitter has built a new feature, popularly known as bookmarking, which lets you save tweets from people you follow and interact on Twitter. This feature is going to be different from the useless “Like” feature of Twitter which people many a time use to save their favorite tweets, except for the fact that they are publicly available to everyone.
This is the primary reason, I have many times saved those tweet by sending them over email, and I am sure many of you must be using few services available online that lets you do this. This was revealed by Twitter’s program manager Jesar. He said:
Hi Twitter! Many of you (especially in Japan!) have said you’d like to be able to easily + privately save Tweets for later. Right now, people bookmark Tweets by liking, DM-ing to themselves, or Retweeting. But this could be easier.
The option will be available under the submenu, right next to the every tweet you see online. You will be able to see all those bookmarks from a central location later. This is similar to “Save” option available for Facebook which is many a time used for videos.
This is definitely a great option not only for consumers but become an analytics feature for Twitter as well to figure out what people had been reading and saving for later.
That said, there is no word on when this feature will become available for general public, and I am assuming this is going to roll out to select users first, and then will become public in coming months.
