A save-for-later feature may soon be coming to Twitter

Besides the addition of the bookmarking feature, the general layout will also be shuffled, changing the way tweets are presented. With Twitter slowly expanding tweets to 280 characters and creating a tweetstorm feature, it could be helpful to have a place to put posts that contain lots of information.

Twitter product manager Jesar Shah unveiled this feature informing that many users, especially in Japan want the feature on Twitter through which they can simply and privately save Tweets for later usage.

Twitter wants to build the new bookmarking tool with the community's help and feedback.

Twitter is coming up with new exciting features one after another. "We'll be Tweeting to ask for feedback, and share our thinking as we compare designs, experiment, do research, and more", Shah added, with emphasis. None of the above-mentioned methods are as convenient as clicking a button to save the tweet.

England fans 'should be proud' of team qualifying for 2018 World Cup
By this time , England had already qualified for the World Cup as Scotland bagged a late goal to beat Slovakia. England is favorited at 1.33, whilst Slovenia is at 12.00 for the outright win.

"Right now, people bookmark [sic] Tweets by liking, DM-ing to themselves, or Retweeting", Shah said.

Twitter's other employees, including new hired Sriram Krishnan, who is a senior director of product also noted Twitter's plans for this new feature. The "send via DM" option is expected to be replaced by an overflow menu that reveals a similar feature. Just go to the Settings option and you will see an option of bookmarks there. All of the bookmarked tweets will be stored in a dedicated part of the app. You can choose from these options to a particular tweet.

A recent prototype shows that the feature is listed under the More menu, denoted by three dots, but this is likely going to be changed before the feature is released for all users.

Shah also revealed that users now make do by Liking or sending tweets to themselves via DM.
