California-based social networking company, Twitter has started testing its new feature, ‘save for later’ bookmarking feature that had teased last month. This new feature is eyeing on to help its 330 million active users, who privately flag tweets for personal viewing at their convenience. However, in October, Twitter had announced that it is developing a bookmarking feature to save tweets. Keith Coleman, who is Head of Product had also informed that a new feature #SaveForLater was in the progress.
In the previous announcement, Tina Koyama, a staff product designer at the company tweeted about this feature by mentioning, “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 also added, “The feature will help active users to keep a separate list of items they want to refer back to, instead of using the heart (aka “favorite”) button, which can indicate more of a “like” and similar to the “thumbs up” button on Facebook.”
Back in October Before the announcement of the feature, Twitter product manager Jesar Shah stated the feature was popularly requested by users, adding that many people, “especially in Japan”, had asked for this ability. According to the report, This recent feature may appear in a menu 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.
