Many people use Twitter's "Like" button to save tweets and articles that they'd like to come back to later, but today Twitter unveiled a new way to save tweets for later.
Twitter is launching a new feature called Bookmarks. As with bookmarks on the web, you can use Twitter's Bookmarks to save tweets for easy access later on. To bookmark a tweet, you tap the share icon under the tweet and select "Add tweet to Bookmarks". Only you can see your bookmarked tweets.

When you've got some free time to view your bookmarked tweets, you can find them by tapping "Bookmarks" from your profile icon menu. You can remove a bookmark when you're done with it if you'd like.
While using Twitter's "Like" button to save tweets for later has worked for many people in the past, some folks may not like to do that because your Liked tweets can be viewed by anyone. That means that if you Like a tweet that some may view as controversial, it could be taken as you endorsing that tweet. Now you can use Bookmarks to privately save tweets for later.
