Now via this feature, this whole procedure will become easier for the users.

According to a recent tweet by a Twitter employee, the company seems to be working on a save-for-later feature that would allow users to bookmark specific tweets or links to view at a later time. "Been a top request", he tweeted. As it has been the hot discussion, the team would love your feedback as they dial in the design.

A product manager shared an early prototype of the feature which is referred to as "Save for Later" and could save users from liking and retweeting to bookmark things.

In its current incarnation, however, it doesn't look as seamless as it could be, requiring you to tap the More options button under a tweet before you can save an update. Sure, it's not the best method, but hey, it gets the job done.

Twitter's move to add bookmarking to its service comes just weeks after the company began to test longer tweets. However, it could be misinterpreted, as a heart represents a positive emotion about something. Previously using a heart button (more like the "thumbs up" button in Facebook) to mark the post or tweet as one's favorite was present. If you click "Add to Bookmarks", you can save that tweet. Shah showed an early prototype that was built during Twitter's internal Hack Week, which she said "is likely to change". "As someone who reads a LOT on Twitter, I'm so excited for this", tweeted Sriram Krishnan who works on product development at Twitter. The United States lawmakers have insisted that these social media networking sites should find out a way to curb foreign operatives from spreading their propaganda in the United States.

On Monday, Twitter shares closed down 1.01% at $17.67.
