How do you save a tweet for later (mobile and desktop)?

I have been using Instapaper to save tweets. Yet whenever I revisit the tweets, they're often saved in a weird format. So please advise if you have some other better ways to save tweets. Many thanks!

    If you are using Twitter mostly from a desktop browser, then Pocket's extensions for Safari, Chrome, Firefox, and Edge will help. It adds a small pocket button on each tweet – right between "retweet" and "like" buttons.

    Ivan does a great job highlighting exactly why Pocket is such a great tool for saving tweets (the simple button within Twitter). I would add that Pocket has probably one of the best designs and user experiences of any app out there. One example is when you save a page to Pocket, it automatically suggests recommended tags, which can be a major time saver when those match what you would have tagged the tweet/url with anyway. In addition, if you subscribe to the paid version of Pocket, Pocket Premium, as I have done ($4.99 per month, or $44.99 per year), I believe it actually saves a digital copy of any page you save to Pocket, in case the page/tweet is later deleted or moved. All these factors together create a lot of value for me, so much so that Pocket Premium joins the short list of apps I subscribe to on a monthly basis. Hope this helps Ning 👍

    You can use IFTTT to setup applets that will automate the process for you. For example, you can setup a method where when you like a tweet, then it will save it to Pocket, or have it saved to a Google Spreadsheet, or you can even have the tweet sent to your email. Applets are really easy to setup and worth checking out.

    • I've been using IFTTT since it came out ages ago, and it's one of the first things I install on any new phone. I use it as the connective tissue for all my smart home products and apps. You can do amazing things with it.

    Highlight, save, and share any web page

    Liner is really great for highlighting and saving Tweets. For me, it gives that extra functionality of highlighting a _specifc_ part of a tweet.
