Twitter Bookmarks. You may or may not have heard of them. But what are they exactly? And why would you even want to make one?
Well, there are lots of different reasons to have Twitter Bookmarks. One is to keep business separate from personal. For example, if you own a small business, and you have a Twitter account for that business, you can keep it private and store it for later without publicly liking it as your business.
Say there’s a guy named Bob. Bob owns an accounting company, a small business called Example Accounting. Say he goes on Example Accounting’s Twitter handle and finds some cool post about gymnastics, and Bob’s daughter is in gymnastics. So he’s about to like it, but he realizes that it will show “Example Accounting likes a gymnastic post” and it’s a public action. Now, he can Bookmark that post privately without reflecting on his business!
Also, another way it works is just to save posts for later. If you find a cool tweet about an entrepreneur, but you don’t want it to get lost in your jumbled feed, add it to your Bookmarks and you won’t have to worry about it again.
But – there’s only one catch: It’s for mobile devices only! (On some browsers, however, you are able to download an add-on for seeing a website on its mobile version, and it will work.)
