Saving to Pocket from Twitter

Introduction

Twitter and Pocket are a match made in heaven. It’s super easy to save content that you discover on Twitter to your Pocket account, from any device!

As a bonus, when you save a link from Twitter and open it in Pocket for iOS or Android, you'll see the original tweet at the top of the article. We call this Tweet Attribution, and it helps you remember where you originally found the link. You can also perform actions on it, just like when you're on Twitter's website or apps.

To learn how to save from Twitter, just click on the appropriate platform below.

Saving to Pocket from Twitter on iOS

A quick note about the iOS share menu

Twitter supports the iOS share menu, so you'll use this to save to Pocket.

This menu includes share extensions that let you share to other apps and services. It’s important to enable the Pocket share button in the second row of icons (below your contacts) to save and add Tags.

Note: You can also use a Save to Pocket option in a list of options just below the app icons that swipe left and right. This is an even faster way to save that does not show a "page saved" popup or tag option, so it's ideal when you want to save lightning-fast without adding tags.

Save to Pocket from Twitter 

Once you’ve added Pocket to your share menu, there are two methods to save:

1. Saving with long-press 

Find a link or article that you want to save, and do a long-press by resting your finger on it for a second or two. 

A preview of the article will appear. Look for the actions list below this and select Share Via...

Finally, in the share menu, tap Pocket to save it to your list.

Tip: Please be sure to long-press directly on the link or article you’re trying to save, not the tweet background or other non-hyperlinked text.

2. Saving after opening an article

If you want to open an item to see what it is before saving, no problem! You can easily save after opening it. Here’s how:

  • Tap a link or article in your Twitter feed to view it in the in-app browser
  • Tap the Share button in the bottom menu
  • In the share menu, tap Pocket to save it to your list
