As of now, if people want to save a tweet to refer in future, they either have to bookmark it by liking it, DM it to themselves or retweet. The liking bit does not always work in favor, because you like a gazillion posts, but there is only a handful out of them that you actually want to go back to. There is no way right now to separate the tweets that your want to read later. However, the save for later feature is expected to help with that.
Shah posted saying that Twitter is aiming to build the bookmarking option with inputs from Twitter users. She revealed that the company plans to ask users for feedback as the company designs and experiments with the feature. Twitter users can offer feedback and comments using the hashtag #SaveForLater.

Born out of a Hack Week, the new feature is aimed to provide an easier alternative to that maintains privacy. The prototype shared by Shah shows the service s mobile site and features an overflow icon in lieu of the DM button in the main feed. A panel pops up with a new Add to Bookmarks button, as well as the regular Share via DM option. Upon saving, a snack bar appears with a shortcut to View Bookmarks. Alternately, there will also be a new Bookmarks section in the app s main menu that shows a list of saves. As Shah mentioned, the feature appears to be in its early stages, and is bound to receive changes. ALSO READ: Twitter is secretly testing a tweetstorm feature within its app: Report
