Bookmarking on Twitter is a great feature that’s often overlooked. Here’s how to use it efficiently.

In the age of the internet, bookmarks are one of the simplest yet most useful features, as they enable you to save some of your favorite web content for later.

This function is also available on Twitter, and in this article, we’ll show you how to bookmark tweets on both your phone and web browser.

While you can always take screenshots or favorite tweets for later reference, bookmarking tweets allows you to better organize tweets on your devices.

Twitter is one of the mainstream social media apps where people share thoughts and opinions; however, the app has become a reliable source that monitors public opinion in recent years. In addition, Twitter users can save their favorite tweets on bookmarks to revisit them later.

Why do you need bookmarks on Twitter?

While you can create different lists depending on their topic, audience, and other factors, there is only one bookmark folder. In addition, you can choose if you want the lists to be public or private.

Also, the bookmark folder is entirely private. You cannot create different categories inside your Twitter bookmarks, either (this feature is only available in Twitter Blue, Twitter’s premium subscription service).

Therefore, bookmarks are most valuable when you want to save a specific tweet for revisiting later. Then, you can add a comment, like, retweet, or add the tweet to your lists.

  1. Tap on your Account Icon at the top left of the Twitter application
  2. Now select Bookmarks to view the previously marked tweets

Now that you are done with adding bookmarks, you can clear your bookmarks to keep the folder nice and tidy, as well. This works the same on both the app and desktop versions of Twitter.

  1. Go to your bookmarks as we discussed under the previous section
  2. Tab the icon at the top right of the app
  3. Select clear all bookmarks

That’s how you can remove all your bookmarks and make room for new ones.

However, sometimes you just need to clear some, not all, of the bookmarks. To manually remove the bookmarks follow the steps below:

  1. Go to your bookmarks on your Twitter application or the website
  2. Scroll down to the post that you want to remove from your bookmarks
  3. Select the sharing button below the tweet
  4. Click or tap on Remove Tweet from Bookmarks

You can do this either from the bookmarks section (which is probably easier) or if you see the tweet in your feed, you can do it from there as well.
