But you don’t have much time to read it now. How about reading it later? Impossible.
Annoying, isn’t it?
Twitter Vice President of Product Keith Coleman tweeted last October 9 that the micro-blogging site would soon roll out a new feature to allow users to bookmark tweets which he said was a ‘top request’.
Based on Shah’s preview of the feature, a Twitter user can save a tweet to read or view for a later time through an overflow menu replacing the ‘Send via DM’ icon at the bottom right of the tweet. You can view all the tweets that you bookmarked by going to your profile.
Before this feature, most users would either ‘like’ a tweet or send the tweet via DM to themselves just so they can find it somewhere should they need the reference. With this feature, they wouldn’t need to do these.
Although Twitter hasn’t announced an exact release date for this feature yet, we bet all those who use Twitter on a daily basis would find this a huge development and improvement on the micro-blogging platform.
Other Twitter Features On Demand
Others would also love a feature that would help clean-up their feed from tweets they want to get rid of. From removing spam and other ads to filtering or blocking certain hashtags from appearing on their feed.
These might be less of a priority (but surely more important than 280 characters), but if the bookmarking feature caught the attention of the Twitter gods and sent it as a gift to the users, maybe there’s hope for these other features.
It might just take a few more pushes and shoves to finally get these features rolled out for everyone.
