Twitter releases function to save posts to read later; see how to use

Twitter released on Wednesday (28) a new function that allows you to save tweets to read later on the microblog. The idea is that interesting posts do not get lost in the feed when there is no time to see it on time. Available in the Android and iPhone (iOS) app and in the mobile web version, the feature stores the content in a private, user-only list. The novelty looks like something that already exists on Facebook, but it can not be used in the desktop browser.

The save button is located on the sharing shortcut of a post, next to the direct mail and other apps options.
