Twitter has recently put more emphasis on its bookmark feature on iOS, by rolling out a new design that displays the bookmark button under the expanded tweet view. This makes it easier for users to save tweets to their bookmarks, as before this change, users had to tap on the share button to open the sharing card, and then tap on the bookmark option to save a tweet.

With this new button placement, Twitter is making it more convenient for users to save tweets they want to come back to later. This is especially beneficial for users who have been using the “Like” button as a bookmark feature, as it was cumbersome to save and retrieve tweets as bookmarks in the past.

In addition to the new button placement, as soon as you tap on the button, you will see a banner at the top of the screen that says “Show all bookmarks.” This makes it even easier for users to access their saved tweets.

Currently, the option is only visible on the iOS app, but it’s expected that Twitter will roll this out to Android and the web soon. Those who have a Twitter Blue subscription can use the bookmark folders feature to arrange their saved tweets in a more organized manner.

Twitter has also recently updated its Android app to show the two timeline options in two side-by-side separate tabs. The company first rolled out the default “For You” timeline and chronological “Following” timeline to iOS last week and later brought this view to the web as well.

This change in design and functionality shows that Twitter is listening to its users and is making a conscious effort to improve their experience. The company is constantly working to make the platform more user-friendly and efficient for its users. With the added convenience of the new bookmark feature, Twitter users can now easily save and access tweets that are important to them.
