Many Twitter users click the like button to save tweets for later reference, but Bookmarks is a dedicated feature for that very purpose. The Explore tab pulls together Moments, trends, search and more to give you a broad sense of what’s going on at a given time.

The redesign also adds a data-saving tool, which stops images from loading automatically, along with more customization for tweet embeds and a refreshed compose tweet box. A message displayed to those included in the test says that night mode is among the new options, but Twitter added that to the website last year. As of last week, Twitter was internally testing revamped threaded conversations and a feature to show you who’s currently online, but those haven’t been included here.
Twitter doesn’t often publicly discuss its tests, so this could be a sign that the company is planning to roll out these changes more broadly. The announcement tweet reads, “Don’t have the new experience? Stay tuned.” That suggests there is a plan to bring this overhaul to everyone eventually. Engadget has contacted Twitter for confirmation.
