Twitter Bookmarks Target Time-Poor Users
Twitter's new 'Bookmarks' feature is designed to help users who are too busy to read new Tweets.

(CCM) — Busy Twitter users now have an easy way to store interesting-looking Tweets so that they can examine them at their leisure later.

The new "Bookmarks" feature can be accessed by tapping on a new "share" icon that now appears on every Tweet, and then selecting "Add Tweet to Bookmarks."

To access that Tweet later, the user taps "Bookmarks" in the profile icon menu. All bookmarked Tweets will then be displayed, and the user can choose to view any of these Tweets or delete them from Bookmarks.
