Twitter has started rolling out Wednesday, February 28, a system of “bookmarks” to allow users to set tweets to side. For this, we must press the button shown in the image below, then select ” add the tweet to the bookmarks “. The user can find the tweets and saved him by going on his profile. This feature is currently only available on the mobile applications of Twitter, on Android and iOS.
This announcement puts an end to years of ambiguity around the two buttons which have succeeded. The button ” favorite “, represented by a star, was used in two different ways by internet users. Some used them to signal that they appreciated a tweet ; others, on the other hand, to put aside some of the messages – and they were concerned that we could confuse this intent with an approval of the content.
