Twitter has launched a new bookmarking feature for tweets. The feature was in testing on iOS for some time now but was officially released for both platforms today.

The bookmarking feature is available under the old DM sharing button. The button has now been redesigned and lets you send the tweet via DM, add it to bookmarks or share it via other other apps on your phone.
Once you add a tweet via this shortcut, it gets added to your bookmarks folder, which can be accessed through the side menu on both iOS and Android. Here, bookmarked tweets will be visible in reverse chronological order of which they were added. This is different from the Likes feature on Twitter, where liked tweets are sorted in the order they were tweeted and not the order they were liked.
The nice thing about the bookmarks is that they get synced across devices, so if you have more than one phone, adding tweets to bookmarks on one device will sync them across both devices. Too bad Twitter doesn’t yet support syncing for drafts.
The Bookmarks feature is available on the iOS and Android apps, Twitter Lite app for Android and Twitter mobile site. It doesn’t seem like the feature is coming to desktop any time soon.
