How to View Bookmarks and Bookmark Tweets from Twitter desktop website

Recently, Twitter introduced the much-needed Bookmarks feature that allows users to save tweets for quick access later. Bookmarks make it easier to view specific tweets at a later time without searching for them across your timeline or digging a certain profile. They are simply accessible in Bookmarks section and no other person can view the bookmarks saved by you. Bookmarks are now available on Twitter for iOS and Android, Twitter Lite and mobile version of Twitter.

Unfortunately, Twitter hasn’t rolled out the bookmarks feature for its web aka desktop version. This makes it difficult for users like us who frequently access Twitter using both the desktop and mobile platform. Hence, if a user has bookmarked an article on Twitter’s mobile app then they’ve to either view it using mobile or share the tweet via email, message, etc. to view it on a desktop. This is certainly cumbersome in case you wish to view and access all your bookmarked tweets on a PC using Twitter’s web interface.

Well, there’s an easy workaround for this limitation.

    Thanks a Ton for tips to save / bookmark – the tweet in desktop.

  9. Bookmarks are a feature to add, but there was a way to do it before by liking a tweet. The other way was to send yourself a direct message. But this feature is good as it helps with privacy…
