Twitter's New and Improved Bookmarks: Easier Access and Better Organization

Twitter has announced plans to update the user interface (UI) for its bookmarks feature, making it easier for users to access and manage their saved tweets.

The new UI, which is currently being tested with a small group of users, will be rolled out to all users and platforms in the coming days. The bookmarks feature allows users to save tweets for later reference. It has been a popular feature among Twitter users, with many using it to save articles, links, and other information for later reading or sharing. Elon Musk is interested in adding this feature to Twitter as he is a firm believer in not liking every tweet you love. Instead, according to him, it is much better to save a tweet in personal bookmarks.

However, the current implementation of the bookmarks feature has been criticized for being difficult to access and manage. To access their bookmarks, users must click on the "More" menu in the tweet options, then select the "Add to Bookmarks" option. This process is cumbersome and requires multiple clicks, making it less convenient for users to access their saved tweets.


The new UI aims to address these issues by making the bookmarks feature more visible and easier to access. Under the new design, users will be able to access their bookmarks by clicking on a separate tab on the main navigation bar. This will allow them to easily access their saved tweets without having to go through the previous multiple-click process.

In addition to making the bookmarks feature more accessible, the new UI will also make it easier for users to manage their saved tweets. The updated design includes a new "Bookmarks Manager" that allows users to organize their saved tweets into different folders and categories. This will make it easier for users to find and reference their saved tweets at a later date.

In addition to benefiting users, the update to Twitter's bookmarks feature is also likely to have a positive impact on advertisers. The new UI, which makes it easier for users to access and manage their saved tweets, is likely to increase the visibility and engagement of sponsored tweets that users have saved.

When users save a sponsored tweet, it is added to their bookmarks and can be accessed and shared at a later date. This can help to extend the life of a sponsored tweet and increase its reach, as users are more likely to share a tweet that they have saved in their bookmarks.

Overall, the new UI for the bookmarks feature is a welcome improvement that should make it easier for users to access and manage their saved tweets. The updated design is expected to be rolled out to all users in the coming weeks.
