Following the launch of Bookmarks earlier this year, Twitter is now testing the feature on desktop as well.
Back in March, Twitter launched its Bookmarks feature, on its mobile app, as an easier way for users to save Tweets for later viewing or sharing. Users just tap the share button on a Tweet and then tap on the “Add Tweet to Bookmarks” option.
The Tweet is then available in a Bookmarks menu within their profile icon menu, to view, share, remove, etc. Months later, it seems to be a pretty popular feature on mobile. Twitter has therefore announced that it’s testing the feature on desktop as well, among a small number of people.
Love to use Bookmarks and want it on web? Into scrolling through Explore to see what's happening?
We are testing out a new Twitter for web, which a small number of people will see today. Love it? Missing something? Reply and tell us. Don't have the new experience? Stay tuned. pic.twitter.com/w4TiRrVFHU

Twitter can be a chaotic place, and this feature helps people organise their content somewhat. Reminiscent of Facebook’s “Save” feature it will help people revisit content that they would have normally forgotten about. But as is the case with “Save,” you could just save something and forget all about it. For the time being, there is no way to remind yourself of old forgotten saves.
That would actually be a pretty useful thing to have.
Of course, there are currently 250 million people using “Save” each month, so one can understand how it’s particularly useful despite its shortcomings.
