Twitter has started testing a new feature which will allow its users to save tweets for a later use. Twitter has started the work last month to include a save for later feature into user’s timeline.
Twitter’s product designer Tina Koyama has announced the #saveforlater team has given the feature a name and it will be called bookmarks.
“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.”– she said.
However, Twitter’s spokesperson has declined to add more comment on this feature.
“We’ll be sure to let you know if/when we have more details to share in terms of a formal announcement!”– he said.
This feature will help users to stop using the like button, which is now being used by many users for further reference.
The bookmarking feature is all set to be included in u in the bottom right corner of a tweet on smartphones, or in the v-drop-down menu in the upper-right corner on the desktop.
The most important aspect of the “Bookmarking” feature is privacy. The company is all set to hide the bookmarking details to tweet source.
“You told us that you want Tweets you’ve bookmarked to be private, so only you can see it,”– Koyama . “We kept this in mind while creating designs for the feature.”
But the users will also have the option of sharing them in a Tweet later if they choose.
