    I think it makes a lot of sense. Most people used "Favourites" to mean "Likes" anyway

      I guess I'm in the minority. I use Favorites on Twitter as bookmarks / reminders to check things out later in addition to just liking things.

        Well, you can still do that, even the URL is the same as before :) https://twitter.com/favorites

          For sure! Now, if only Twitter would give us a way to access that page from the main feed instead of having to visit our own profiles or type type in the URL manually.

        Agreed. If they rolled out a 'Save for Later' with a nice Flipboard or Moments style area to view things you've saved, that'd be really cool.

      I've always used favourites as a means of saving stuff for later rather than "liking" it. I didn't even know liking a tweet was a thing.
