Ever feel like things on Twitter are happening too fast and you don’t have time to catch up, don’t worry, Twitter will soon allow you to bookmark the tweets you like so that you can come back later and read them easily, when you have time.
Twitter moves faster than any other network. Half the lifespan of a tweet is 18 minutes meaning that within 20 minutes, half of the people bound to see your tweet would have seen it already, and with this new feature, maybe the lifespan of a tweet and its impact may be lengthened. Confirming the news, Twitter’s Vice President of Products, Keith Coleman tweeted saying,
“Fresh out of HackWeek and coming soon, a new way to save tweets to read later. Been a top request.”
The system is still being tested to see if people like this new feature and if it will make the Twitter experience a lot better. Before this, people have been liking and favourating tweets and sometimes sending the tweets to themselves just so they can see them later.
Considering the fact that the volume of tweets sent per day are just too many, it makes this upcoming feature necessary. Twitter’s product manager, Jesar Shar tweeted a demo of this new feature.
Not so long ago, Twitter had announced that they are also testing expanding the characters you get to use in one tweet from 140 to 280.
Twitter has been lagging behind other social media sites and has started to engage in a lot of new features to improve and catch up. With 328 million active users, Twitter has less active accounts than Facebook, YouTube, WhatsApp, Instagram and other social networks.
Do you think this new feature will enhance you Twitter experience or ruin it?
