Twitter starts displaying the number of bookmarks on tweet. This is another public metric for measuring posts. The counter now shows the number of bookmarks a tweet has received in addition to the retweet, quote-retweet, and like numbers. The counter currently only shows for iOS users who visit the tweet detail page, but a help document says there are “plans to expand.”

However, users cannot tap the bookmark counter to see who has added it to their list. According to the Twitter Support account, “bookmarks are still private” and the company will “never display which accounts have added a Tweet to their bookmarks.”
You can also sue bookmarks in Twitter Spaces. If you’re hosting or speaking in a room, you can use Bookmarks to organize and queue the Tweets you want to share.
On the other hand, Twitter users are highly critical of the number of bookmarks. Tweets already showed how often it was retweeted, quoted and liked. In December, shortly after Elon Musk acquired the company, Twitter also rolled out view counts for tweets. With the addition of the number of bookmarks, five different stats are now displayed on each tweet. Adding a new count now makes no sense.
