Why can't I see all my Bookmarks on Twitter
Twitter now shows you only some of your Bookmarks. Cool.
Have you ever tried scrolling through your bookmarks, searching for that one hilarious meme or beautifully written story, only to find out it's not there anymore? You remember bookmarking it, so where did it go? Don't worry, you're not alone. Many of us are scratching our heads about this too.
First off, let's clear this up: You didn't do anything wrong. This is a common issue many Twitter users face. It appears that we can only see about 780 of our most recent bookmarked tweets. After that, older bookmarks seem to disappear into thin air.
(Note: this isn’t always the case for everyone but it’s been happening enough that we thought to write about it).
Why does this happen? Well, we're not completely sure. It seems to be a limitation set by Twitter. This can be quite a bummer when you're looking for that one tweet from way back when.
So, what can we do about it? As of right now, the only known solution is to delete some of your older or less important bookmarks to make room for new ones. I know, I know, it's like choosing your favorite toy, but sometimes it's necessary. But don’t worry, dewey. makes it easy to both delete from Twitter and keep a record of it in your personal archives.
Here's how you can do it:
Step 1: Go to Your Bookmarks
Tap on your profile picture at the top of the screen. A list will appear on the left. See the option that says "Bookmarks"? Tap it!
Step 2: Find the Bookmark You Want to Delete
Scroll through your bookmarked tweets until you find one you're ready to say goodbye to.
Step 3: Unbookmark the Tweet
Tap the tweet to open it. Then, tap the Share button (the one that looks like an arrow) at the bottom of the tweet. A menu will pop up. Tap "Remove Tweet from Bookmarks." And poof! The tweet is no longer in your bookmarks.
If you’re a dewey. user we make this incredibly simple right through our app. We rely on the Twitter API which at the moment only allows a bulk bookmark delete of 5 tweets every 15 minutes (kind of a bummer) but it still beats doing it manually. And with dewey. all the tweets remain inside dewey., hosted on our servers, with the ability to do a full export including media files.
It’s the only solution that protects your bookmarks and bypasses this new 780 limit Twitter is imposing.
