Twitter is Engaged on New Folders Inside Bookmarks to Categorize Your Saved Tweets
This is welcome news for those who regularly save a series of tweets.
According to new insight from reverse engineering expert Jane Manchun Wong, Twitter is working on a new folder option on the Bookmarks tab that will allow users to save tweets in a number of defined categories – or “collections,” as is currently the case with Twitter shout them at.
As you can see here, the new procedure allows you to create Category Folders on the Bookmarks tab. You can then choose which folder / collection you want to save a tweet in when you bookmark it in the stream (last screenshot above).
This could be a handy way to keep track of various interesting tweets – while also pointing to the platform’s gradually evolving ecommerce tools. The folders provide another way to keep track of products that you may be interested in, thus helping to maximize shopping behavior.
In its most recent review of Analyst Day, Twitter provided a major update to its developing e-commerce tools Twitter’s Revenue Product Lead Bruce Falck explains this:
“We know people come to Twitter to interact with brands and discuss their favorite products. You may even have noticed that some companies have already come up with creative ways to drive sales on our platform. That demand gives us confidence in the ability to combine real products. ” Conversation with an engaged and deliberate audience. Imagine discovering and quickly buying a new skin care product or trendy sneaker from a brand that you can follow with just a few clicks. “
Collections could serve an important purpose here, much like Instagram’s similar collection option or Saved Pins on Pinterest. This essentially makes the option a virtual shopping list, while the ability to move each saved tweet to a specific collection could further enhance that functionality, along with the general benefit for users of being able to save your favorite tweets in different categories.
It actually seems like a pretty simple and effective way to improve engagement with saved tweets that Twitter probably should have added sooner. Even so, it looks like things are on the right track now. This design example published by Wong appears to be pretty well made.
You can also notice the “Spaces” tab in the middle of the bottom toolbar in these screenshots – Wong wrote about it back in March, and this also seems to have a wider launch soon, as Spaces expanded to more users earlier this month.
This will be a big step in improving Spaces discoverability, while Twitter will also try to create algorithmic matches to ensure that the most relevant Spaces are highlighted for users on that particular tab.
Overall, it seems likely that we will see both features very soon. We will keep you informed of any progress.
