Twitter is set to introduce a bookmark tool that would allow users to save a tweet privately and swiftly go back to it later.

As reported by The Verge, news of the "save for later" option came after a tweet on Monday by Keith Coleman, Twitter’s head of product. 

Coleman said a saving option has been a top request, especially from Japan, as referenced by a flag in his tweet. He further asked for feedback from users as the team is currently designing the option, whose expected launch date is yet to be announced. 

The new tool would enable users to privately save a tweet without having to like or retweet a post publicly, allowing them to easily go back to it.

In her own tweet on Tuesday, Twitter product manager Jesar Shah followed up the announcement with an early demo of the bookmarking feature. 

Twitter's latest announcement comes shortly after it rolled out 280-character tweets, as well as a pledge to update its public guidance on decisions that could determine whether a tweet could be removed or remain on the platform. (liz/kes)
