Twitter is determined to remove the ambiguity associated with its Like button, so users have a more definitive way of saving an article without sounding like they support it.
I like it, I don’t “like” like it
Found an odd Tweet that piqued your interest? Maybe a controversial piece of writing that you’d like to read later? Now you can save it without making a public sign of support, all thanks to the new Bookmark.
The process is simple, “To bookmark a Tweet, tap the share icon under the Tweet and select, ‘Add Tweet to Bookmarks,” according to the official press release. And that’s it.
To find the Tweet later, the new Bookmarks section can be found in your icon menu and off you go. And bookmarks can be deleted at any time.
Keeping it private
To sweeten the feature, all bookmarks are private. Period. Only you can see what you’ve bookmarked and it is available globally to all Android and iOS users, including Twitter Lite and mobile.twitter.com.
There had been rumbling of the new feature as far back as October and doesn’t come as a shock, but rather a happy and necessary feature.
Now users can be a little bit less embarrassed of their “like” section and focus on what’s interesting, judgement-free.
