Twitter is currently testing a new feature called Bookmarks, which will allow their users to save tweets for later. Twitter’s product designer Tina Koyama tweeted a preview of what the feature looks like, with a bookmarks option listed on the user’s navigation menu.
“We went through all the designed flows and picked the ones that are the easiest to navigate to test out with our community,” she tweeted. “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.”
Twitter’s head of product Keith Coleman tweeted about the function last October, saying that the bookmarking feature was a top request from users on the social-networking platform.
News from the #SaveForLater team! We’ve decided to call our feature Bookmarks because that’s a commonly used term for saving content and it fits nicely alongside the names of the other features in the navigation. pic.twitter.com/cQ0X1PHlsR

Currently, if you want to save a tweet, the only way you can do it is by hitting the like button and review your likes at a later time. However, your liked tweets appear publicly on your profile and alert users that you liked that tweet. This new bookmarking feature will privately save your tweets for later. There is no release date for this new Bookmark feature.
