I really wish there was a 'save post' function so I could come back to a thread later to see how the conversation has developed.

Currently I usually only ever see a post once, unless someone boosts it later.

Maybe I'm doing something wrong, please tell me if so, but I would like to just press a button on a post and have it saved in a private list (without notifying the poster).

Kinda (read: exactly) like reddit's save function.

IDK tho maybe that isn't how microblogging is supposed to work.

@peanutbutter144 On web, you could always just bookmark it to a folder?

@george_ that is true, but I do most of my mastodon-ing (?) on my phone on Tusky.

@peanutbutter144 @george_ isn’t that what “favoriting” (the little star) is for?

@tnova @george_ yeah I guess they're pretty close. I didn't know you could access your favorites as a list until just now.

But favouriting a post notifies the author, so not quite what I am looking for. But close enough that consider this problem Solved.

@peanutbutter144 In tusky there's no way I think but maybe you can bookmark it in the browser?

@brandon @peanutbutter144 Press the three dots, share, share link, pick firefox, bookmark.
Gives me a bookmark in firefox to that post.
Do it to the first post when you see a thread and the bookmark shows the thread.

That is a big issue for me too. Sometimes I can't find my own posts and have to go to hunting for it.


Pocket is no use either. It shows toot content within itself and offers no option to open link in app or even browser.
I tried few more apps including proprietary ones.
I even tried sharing link to Tusky but that was creating a toot with link in it. If only Tusky was able to handle Mastodon instance links. But every instance is a different domain and supporting each and everyone of them is a difficult job for Tusky devs.

Fedilab for Android has toot bookmarking. I hope it satisfies your "Save Later" need.
