Bookmarking a tweet

When you're a tweet that you'd like to bookmark, first click the tweet to load it on its own page (you'll see the address as https://twitter.com/username/status/....).

Then click the Markfolder button to bookmark it.

Click "Save bookmark" to save it to the selected folder (it remembers the last folder you used), or select a different folder before saving.

You'll be notified that the tweet has been saved.
