Managing Twitter Bookmarks (X Bookmarks)

Twitter Bookmarks is a handy feature that allows you to save tweets for later reference or reading. The bookmarks are not public. Searching your own bookmarks is a challenge though.

Finding Twitter Bookmarks in X

Whether you’re using the web version, desktop version, or mobile version of X, accessing your Twitter Bookmarks is straightforward. Here’s how:

Web Version:

1. Log in to your X account.

2. Click on your profile picture located in the upper right corner.

3. From the dropdown menu, select “Bookmarks.” Here, you will find all your saved tweets.

Desktop Version:

1. Open the X application on your desktop.

2. Click on the bookmarks icon on the left sidebar. It looks like a small ribbon.

3. Your saved tweets, or Twitter Bookmarks, will appear in this section.

Mobile Version:

1. Open the X app on your mobile device.

2. Tap on your profile picture in the upper left corner to open the menu.

3. Select “Bookmarks” from the list. Here, you’ll find all your Twitter Bookmarks.

Are Twitter Bookmarks Private or Public?

Twitter Bookmarks on X are private by default. Only you can see the tweets you've bookmarked, ensuring your saved content remains personal and confidential. However, X does display the number of bookmarks a tweet has received on its public interface, providing a general idea of its popularity without revealing individual users' bookmarks.

Do not confuse likes with Twitter Bookmarks. X is making a change to make likes on posts private by default for all users. Previously, likes on Twitter were public information that anyone could see, but with this upcoming change, likes will be hidden from public view.

Changes in Twitter Bookmarks on X

While the core functionality of Twitter Bookmarks remains the same on X, there have been a few notable changes:

  1. Folders for Bookmarks: X has introduced the ability to create folders for your bookmarked tweets, allowing for better organization and categorization. This feature is currently available only for X Blue subscribers.

  2. Increased Character Limit: With X's increased character limit of 4,000 characters per tweet, bookmarking longer tweets and threads has become more convenient.

  3. Integration: Twitter Bookmarks in X are better integrated with other features, such as lists and collections, allowing for more organized and categorized saving.

Searching Within Twitter Bookmarks

There is no built-in search function within Bookmarks on Twitter (X).

The absence of a search function within bookmarks is a limitation that users have been requesting from X for some time.  mindECHO is a browser extension that allows you to instantly search and find content across your multiple bookmarks and saved web pages, including your Twitter bookmarks on X. This tool acts as a personal web archive, enabling you to retrieve relevant information from your curated collection of bookmarked tweets and other web content.
