How to Remove a Bookmark on Twitter

Although most of your interactions on Twitter come directly from your timeline, some tweets aren’t just passing thoughts. Twitter allows you to save tweets that you’d like to revisit later, so job postings, health PSAs, and much more can all be kept in a secure, private location. However, these tweets can start piling up or lose relevance over time. If you’re wondering how to remove a bookmark on Twitter, we can help.

In this article, we will explain how to do so on both the desktop version and in the mobile app. Plus, we’ll answer some common questions related to different Twitter bookmark functions.

How to Remove a Bookmark on Twitter

First, let’s take a look at how to remove bookmarks on Twitter. For any device, the instructions are the same. To remove a tweet that you aren’t interested in anymore, follow the steps below:

  1. Tap the three-stripe icon in the upper left corner of your screen to open the sidebar.
  2. Tap “Bookmarks” to see your bookmarks.
  3. Find the tweet you want to remove and tap the share button located to the right from the comment, like, and retweet buttons.
  4. Tap “Remove Bookmark”.

How to Remove All Bookmarks on Twitter

Over time, saved tweets pile up and you may forget about them, which leads to a mess in your bookmarks. If this happens, you may want to clear all your bookmarks at once. To do that, follow the steps below:

  1. Tap the three-stripe icon in the upper left corner of your screen to open the sidebar.
  2. Tap “Bookmarks” to see your saved tweets.
  3. Tap the three-dot icon in the upper right corner of your screen and select “Clear all Bookmarks”.

How to Add a Bookmark on Twitter

Now that you know how to remove Twitter bookmarks, you may want to find out how to add bookmarks without tapping the like button. The steps are the same for the desktop version and the mobile app. To save a tweet you want to come back to, do the following:

  1. Tap the share button below the tweet you want to bookmark. It is located to the right from the comment, like, and retweet buttons.
  2. Select “Bookmark” from the dropdown menu.
  3. To see your bookmarks, open the left sidebar and click on the bookmark icon.

How to Create Reading Lists on Twitter

  1. Tap the three-stripe icon in the upper left corner of your screen to open the sidebar.
  2. Navigate to Lists.
  3. Tap the list icon with a plus located in the lower right corner to add a list.
  4. Type in a name and description of your list and choose privacy settings.
  5. Add people you want to read to your list by tapping the “Add” button.
  6. Tap “Done”.


Here are the answers to some common questions about additional Twitter functions.

Who can see my bookmarks?

The person who posted the tweet won’t know that you added a tweet to bookmarks, as opposed to other actions such as likes and retweets. Your followers can’t see your bookmarks either.

What are the advantages of bookmarks as opposed to likes?

Firstly, the like button lets a person know that you have reacted to a tweet. Sometimes even your followers get notifications about your likes on other accounts. Bookmarks are only visible to you. Secondly, the app’s recommendation engine analyzes likes to provide you with relevant content. Not every tweet that you’d like to read later is a good example of what you’d like to see in your feed often.

What is the difference between bookmarks and lists on Twitter?

Bookmarks contain certain tweets, while lists include all tweets from specified accounts. Bookmarks are private by default. For Twitter lists, you choose the privacy settings – you can make your list private or visible to public, similar to a news account. If you often bookmark tweets from the same accounts, creating a list may be more convenient for you.

Can other users add my tweets to bookmarks and lists?

The short answer is – yes. If your account is public, anyone can read your tweets and bookmark them. If your account is private, only your followers can add your tweets to their lists and bookmarks. There’s no way of knowing which of your tweets are bookmarked. However, you can see to which lists your account is added through the Lists menu. The only way to remove yourself from a list is to block its creator.

Is there a limit on the number of bookmarks?

There is currently no known limit to Twitter bookmarks, so you are unlikely to lose old bookmarks due to full storage. However, there are limits on the number of lists you can follow (1,000), number of tweets and messages per day, and many other functions. Don’t worry, though – the limits are so high that an average user is highly unlikely to reach them.

Don’t Lose Your News

Now that you know how to add and remove bookmarks on Twitter, you won’t lose any interesting tweets. Hopefully, you have also found the most suitable way of saving tweets – through likes, bookmarks, or lists.
