In an era of information overload where a continuous stream of tweets flood our timelines, it’s easy to become overwhelmed with content. And sometimes, even when you find a piece of content that catches your attention, you might not have the time to really dive in.
That’s where Twitter Bookmarks come into play.
In this article, we’ll discuss what the Bookmarks feature is, provide a step-by-step guide on how to bookmark tweets, and explore ideas for when bookmarking tweets can prove invaluable.
Twitter Bookmarks is a feature that allows users to save tweets privately, creating a personalized collection for future reference. It offers a convenient alternative to traditional methods such as retweeting or liking a tweet, both of which can sometimes clutter your timeline.
If you’re a Twitter Blue subscriber, you’ll also have the added benefit of being able to create folders for your Bookmarks. This provides a way to organize tweets into curated lists, ensuring you can easily find what you’re looking for when needed. (You can check this out in the screenshot below.)
You can feel at ease whenever you bookmark tweets because the tweet’s creator won’t know it was you! They will only be able to see how many users bookmarked a tweet, but not who the user was. So, it’s totally private and for your eyes only.
Now, let’s talk about how to bookmark tweets so you can start saving posts!
The first step, of course, is to find a tweet you’d like to save for later. This can be done on the desktop website, as well as the mobile apps for both iOS and Android.
The easiest way to bookmark tweets is to click on the individual tweet that you’d like to save. From there, you’ll see a flag icon. Tap that and your tweet will be saved for later! You can see what this looks like in the screenshot below.
Alternatively, you can use the share icon. The share icon is represented by an arrow that’s pointed upwards on both desktop and mobile. You can find it in the bottom-right corner of a tweet. Tap or click on this icon. When you do, a menu will appear with a few different options. From there, you’ll want to select the option that says “Bookmark.” This is also depicted by an icon that features a small flag with a plus sign. The screenshot below shows what this looks like on the Twitter website. Now, you have successfully saved a tweet to your Bookmarks!
You can easily access all of your Twitter Bookmarks via the main navigation menu on the desktop website or mobile. The screenshot below shows where to find the Bookmarks tab on the Twitter website.

Now that you know how to bookmark tweets, you’ll be able to see what a powerful tool this is. By following the steps outlined above, you can harness the full potential of this feature and stay organized within the Twitterverse. Happy bookmarking!
