Next project: folders for your Twitter bookmarks

I use Twitter a lot, and I also save useful Tweets in my Twitter bookmarks so I can refer back to them later, or for longer threads or posts, so I can read them later. However, Twitter is lacking in a couple of basic bookmarking functionality, i.e. folders and search for bookmarks.

I did a quick search on Twitter and found that lots of people have been asking for this too, so I thought I would have a go at creating a solution.

The vision for this product would be to combine private and public bookmarks so you can not only save but also share your bookmarks.

This is by no means a new concept - bookmarking apps have been done to death. But I think there's room for a Twitter-specific bookmarking tool that a) integrates tightly with Twitter, and b) provides a UX that's tailor-made for reading tweets.

Well that's the hypothesis, so this will be an experiment to test that :)

    Yes please build this! I think quotable twitter personalities will do the marketing for you. Hard to believe this doesn’t exist yet. Go for it!

      Thanks for the encouragement!

      I've often thought about why popular apps lack certain "obvious" features, but I'm sure the view of what's obvious or important from inside a those companies would be different to ours.

      Btw, what do you mean by "quotable twitter personalities"?

        By “quotable twitter personalities” I mean respected thought leaders whose tweets get bookmarked a lot. Like I can imagine James Clear or Jack Butcher tweeting about this new bookmarking functionality so that more and more of their followers might continue bookmarking. In a way, it’s self-serving for building their twitter audiences, which means there’s a good chance they will share it. Nothing better than free, word-of-mouth marketing.

          Understood, and that's a great insight. Thanks for sharing.
