Twitter puts more emphasis on bookmark functionality on iOS • TechCrunch
After promising a feature that lets you easily tag tweets, Twitter is now rolling it out to iOS. The new design displays the bookmark button below the enlarged view of the tweet. Make it easy to add an item to your favorites.
Before today’s change, you had to tap the share button to open the share card and then tap the bookmark option to save a tweet. In addition to the new button, as soon as you tap it, you’ll see a banner at the top of the screen that says “Show all bookmarks.”
The option is currently only visible on the iOS app, but we can expect Twitter to roll it out to Android and web soon.
Earlier this month, Elon Musk promised to bring the bookmark button for the detailed view of the tweet. Now it is finally rolling out to end users. Many people have used the “Like” button as a bookmark feature, simply because it was cumbersome to save and retrieve tweets as bookmarks. But this new button placement might change things up a bit.
Notably, if you have a Twitter Blue subscription – which is now also available on Android – you can use the bookmark folders feature to better organize them.
Along with this, Twitter has also updated its Android app to display the two timeline options in two separate side-by-side tabs. The company first rolled out the default “For You” timeline and “Next” timeline to iOS last week.
Later, he also brought this view to the web. At that time, Twitter remembered your timeline choice even if you closed the tab. So, for example, if you chose “Next” and opened Twitter in a new tab after closing it, the “Next” timeline appeared as the default feed. However, the company now appears to have made the change in such a way that you’ll see the default “For You” feed if you refresh the page or open Twitter in a new tab.
Meanwhile, last night the company changed its API terms, killing third-party customers in the process. As a result, well-known apps like Twitterrific have started pulling their apps from app stores.
