Bookmarking toots: Thanks to the brilliant tips by obscurosaur, I have tried & tested two methods:
1. Reply to the toot with a unique hashtag. Remove the id of the tooter. If you remove id, the tooter can see the reply if they check, but will not get notifications.
2.Reply to the toot & DM to yourself. Remove the id of the tooter. The tooter will not get your reply.
If this doesn't make you hopeful in these abysmal times, what will?

Half the month is over but @firstname.lastname@example.org is quite below the half-way mark for the Rs 30 lakh donations needed to do its work. As of now we have no sources of funding other than some meagre advertising income. So readers, please be generous. http://support.thewire.in
Friends, readers, please donate to the @email@example.com. Make it a habit. India needs to strengthen such watchdog journalism. Particularly now, when so many media houses have lost their spine. The team at The Wire does stellar work with meagre resources. Help them stay strong.

Musalman jo aaj hindustan me hain, aaplog Indian by choice hain, hum baaki log Indian by chance hain. Hume koi choice nahi tha, humare liye yahi ek desh tha.

Some very disturbing images are coming out of #India today. The government appears to have badly underestimated the citizenship law’s impacts-unless, that is, it simply doesn’t care. But let’s be clear: These images are not the India that its government wants the world to see.
Indian establishment doesn't give a damn. The entire country is terrified, people will think twice to take out protest. They want to rule by fear. They have shown a trailer.
We've had dictatorial leadership, we've had submissive leadership. We've had stupid leadership, we've had brilliant leadership. But for the first time, we have a leadership that is out and out evil.
@AamAadmiParty's Amanatullah Khan is currently inside the Kalkaji Police Station. He's asking the cops to release the students. Harsh Mander and Kabir still inside.
Stop Press. A cutting-edge patent application has been filed in the name of Narendra Damodardas Modi for an innovative method to identify perpetrators of violence "by their clothes itself." This tech. is expected to ease police investign, letting them skip several complex steps.
Jats were infiltrators? Shiv Sainiks ?(lost count of the buses and property they have burnt over years) Ram Rahim followers? What bunk is this. Stop dogwhistle commentary in guide of hot takes.
