Twitter testing Bookmarks feature to let you privately flag tweets

San Francisco/New Delhi: Twitter is testing a new feature named Bookmarks. The features users privately flag tweets for viewing at ease when they have time.

The feature will reportedly help users keep a separate list of items that they might want to refer back to.

The new feature may appear in a menu in the bottom right corner of a Tweet on smartphones.

In October, the micro-blogging platform announced that it is developing a bookmarking feature to save tweets.

Keith Coleman, Head of Product, had tweeted that the new feature #SaveForLater was in the works.

"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," Tina Koyama, a staff product designer at the company, tweeted late on Thursday.

Jesar Shah from Twitter said the feature was popularly requested by users, adding that many people, "especially in Japan", had asked for this ability.
