In Twitter, you have the option to mark tweets as favorites. Other than this, there’s actually no way for you to save or bookmark a tweet right within your account. You’ll have to manually bookmark tweets. To do so, you’ll have to take advantage of the bookmark feature of your browser or simply use a third-party web app.
Speaking of the latter, here’s an easy to way to bookmark tweets from Twitter without downloading or installing any third-party extension or browser add-on.
How to bookmark tweets from Twitter
- Open your web browser of choice. You can use Chrome, Firefox, Opera, etc.
- Go here to open the homepage of “TweetSave” – a free online tool/web app that lets you bookmark tweets from Twitter.
- Once you’re on TweetSave, you can see an empty field. That is where you should paste the URL or ID of the tweet that you wish to bookmark.
- Now, go ahead and open a new tab. Open Twitter (twitter.com) then log in to your account.
- Find a tweet that you wish to bookmark. Click the time or date stamp next to your selected tweet to view it in a separate page.
- Next, copy the full URL of the tweet that is shown on your browser’s address bar.
- Once done, go back to TweetSave then paste the URL on the field provided. Click the “TweetSave” button to proceed.
- If, in case, you get an error message, try removing the “https://” from your tweet URL before you click the confirmation button. If it still doesn’t work, you can just paste the tweet ID on the field provided.
- To get the tweet ID, just copy the numbers at the end part of your tweet link. For example, if your tweet URL is twitter.com/Life_Affirming/status/525635502754373633 then the tweet ID is 525635502754373633.
So that’s it. The online tool will automatically bookmark your tweet and save it to your personal tweet bookmarks list. You may then bookmark the link to your tweet bookmarks list to your browser.
To share your bookmarked tweets, just copy and send your tweet bookmarks list link to your friends or contacts via email, Facebook or online messenger.
