The new feature by twitter will be available on mobile users around the globe. Twitter has added a new feature to improve their users experience. The new share icon brings up a menu with three options to choose from: ‘Send via DM,’ ‘Add Tweet to Bookmarks’ and ‘Share Tweet via…’ The intention of this is to make it much easier to save tweets so you can read them later and to share them off the platform.
The engineers incharge of Twitter started developing the tools during the company’s annual Hack Week activities in 2017 and even finished working the prototypes after the event same year.
Product manager Jesar Shah explains why they decided to add this feature.
While people have always been able to save tweets by liking them or sending them to themselves, the Bookmark tool makes things much easier. When a tweet is Bookmarked, it gets saved to a list that only the person that saved it can see: everything that have been saved can be accessed by going to the category.
Twitter said in a statement:
“We Tweeted ongoing updates as we built Bookmarks so we could incorporate your input as we worked. By working this way, we learned that you like to save replies so you can answer later and that you may share a Tweet hours or days later after you’ve bookmarked it. Thank you for being part of this process — your feedback was valuable in building this update, and it made it all the more fun for us as we built a new feature for you. As a result, we all have an easier way to save, share, and stay informed.”
The new tools will be available today to all users around the globe on all possible ways to access the platform on mobile devices. That means you’ll be able to Bookmark tweets on iOS, Android, Twitter Lite and mobile.twitter.com.
