Measuring Popularity of Tweets with Twitter’s New Feature

Twitter has announced a new feature that shows how many times users have bookmarked a tweet.

This feature is intended to help measure the popularity of a tweet, as well as other statistics displayed by Twitter, such as the number of retweets and the number of replies to a tweet.

Only on iOS

In this regard, the company said that starting Thursday, March 16, “you will be able to see how many times any tweet has been bookmarked on the Tweet details page.”

He also noted that the feature is currently only available on the Twitter iOS app, but promised to launch a similar feature on other platforms without a date.

I also mentioned on the tech support page for the new feature that the bookmark count will be displayed for all tweets without exception, confirming that the bookmarks will remain private, meaning that users cannot know who bookmarked a particular tweet, unlike the number of likes, quotes, and retweets. By clicking on it, you can see the accounts that interacted with the tweet.

Big changes

Notably, Twitter has begun making major changes to the service since Elon Musk acquired it and took over as executive director.

Among the most notable things that Musk did was the launch of the paid service “Twitter Blue”, which provides subscribers with exclusive features, including the ability to edit tweets, a folder for bookmarks, the ability to change the icon and design of the application, a tab for viewing the most popular articles, a convenient reading mode , view fewer ads, and the ability to tweet up to 4,000 characters, among many other features.
