Scrolling back to a specific tweet can be challenging if you don’t have a screenshot or username because new content keeps streaming every second. Bookmarks enable you to get back to a tweet without retweeting or liking it. It’s a way of saving information that you deem inaccurate, controversial, or valuable.
You might think that the “Like” button on Twitter is the simplest way to bookmark interesting tweets if you’re unfamiliar with the platform. However, as you’ll discover shortly, there are better options than liking a tweet.
Twitter’s bookmark, introduced in 2018, is a cool feature that allows you to save your favorite tweet without anyone else knowing. This article will show you how to bookmark tweets on different devices.
How to Bookmark a Tweet on a PC
The process of bookmarking a tweet is straightforward. Here are the steps;

That’s it. The tweet will be saved for future reference. You can also bookmark your tweet.

Unable to Bookmark a Tweet?
The bookmarking feature often works smoothly, but it might have issues if your twitter app has problems. Below are possible reasons why you might be unable to bookmark a tweet:
Unstable Internet Connection
When your internet connection is sketchy, you might think you have bookmarked your tweet when you haven’t. When you eventually make a connection, the tweet won’t appear on the “Bookmark” tab.
Some older versions of Twitter may present such problems. Try checking on Google Play Store for updates and new versions. Also, ensure that your operating system is updated, which can cause some apps to malfunction.
Over time, a cache can accumulate and cause some functionalities to stop working. Try emptying the browser cache if you’re having these problems with a browser. If you’re experiencing a problem with the app, clear the app’s cache memory.
Sometimes, an app can act funny. In such an instance, restart your device or uninstall and reinstall it.
There you have it, no more “liking” an odd tweet with a link to an article to return to it later when you have some spare time, only to have the same weird tweet remain in your “likes” tab indefinitely. Get to bookmarking and tidy up that “likes” section while you’re at it.
