    Twitter Added A New Feature That Allows Users To See How Many Times A Tweet Was Bookmarked, And The Internet Had Some Hilarious Takes On That

    As always, people on Twitter always have the most A+++ reactions to everything.

    If you've ever spent any time on Twitter, then you know that it can be a messy, messy place. And recently, it has been downright chaotic.

    Well, earlier today, Twitter decided to make it even more chaotic by announcing a feature that NOBODY asked for: Users are able to see how many times a tweet of theirs has been bookmarked. Also, it should be noted that the feature only allows people to see how many times a tweet has been bookmarked; it doesn't allow users to see by whom.

    We love Bookmarks for saving Tweets to revisit later. Starting today on iOS, you’ll now see the total number of times a Tweet has been bookmarked on Tweet details.

    If you don't use Twitter and are wondering what this all means, essentially, by bookmarking a tweet, the person who bookmarked it can easily access it anytime (without having to dig through someone's Twitter, etc.). But a bookmarked tweet can be weird if you posted a selfie or some random thought that really shouldn't mean anything to anyone.

    Needless to say, this feature wasn't welcomed with enthusiasm. So I decided to do a roundup of funny tweets that truly capture how everyone is feeling about this:

    Also, be sure to like and follow these Twitter users!
