The tool will finally let users store tweets without having to "like" the bad stuff people write in them. None of the above-mentioned methods are as convenient as clicking a button to save the tweet.

The product manager of Twitter, Jesar Shah has also shared a quick demo regarding this new Save for Later feature which you can find out in the above tweets which was shared by him through his own Twitter handle.

Apparently, they plan to replace the "send via DM" icon on the bottom right portion of tweets with an overflow menu. A panel pops up with a new "Add to Bookmarks" button, as well as the regular "Share via DM" option.

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

Twitter will allow users to bookmark tweets for later viewing in a dedicated area on the site, giving a potentially better option than liking, retweeting, or emailing a tweet to themselves to save it. On opening this, a menu opens where the bookmark option appears.
