MNA Science & Tech Desk: Twitter is testing a new feature named “Bookmarks” that will help its 330 million monthly active users privately flag tweets for viewing at ease when they have time.

In October, the micro-blogging platform announced that it is developing a bookmarking feature to save tweets.

“News from the #SaveForLater team! We’ve decided to call our feature ‘Bookmarks’ because that’s a commonly used term for saving content and it fits nicely alongside the names of the other features in the navigation,” Tina Koyama, a staff product designer at the company, tweeted.

The feature will help users keep a separate list of items they want to refer back to, instead of using the heart (aka “favourite”) button, which can indicate more of a “like”-similar to the “thumbs up” button on Facebook.

The new feature may appear in a menu in the bottom right corner of a Tweet on smartphones.
