Welcome to Twitter Moments

    Welcome to Twitter Moments

    [vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_empty_space height=”5px”][vc_column_text]Twitter’s been in the news today and that’s not entirely due to its original co-founder Jack Dorsey coming back on board. Twitter has released its entirely new feature Twitter Moments.

    It’s a separate tab added on your mobile and desktop providing you[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”5px”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_empty_space height=”5px”][vc_column_text]a collection of important tweets, GIFs, Vine videos and photos based on a particular topic or news.

    Before I jump into explaining what it really is, read this quote from Twitter below to understand the reason for introducing it:[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”5px”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column css=”.vc_custom_1455994738176{padding-bottom: 15px !important;}”][vc_empty_space height=”5px”][vc_raw_html]JTNDYmxvY2txdW90ZSUzRVdlJTIwa25vdyUyMGZpbmRpbmclMjB0aGVzZSUyMG9ubHktb24tVHdpdHRlciUyMG1vbWVudHMlMjBjYW4lMjBiZSUyMGElMjBjaGFsbGVuZ2UlMkMlMjBlc3BlY2lhbGx5JTIwaWYlMjB5b3UlMjBoYXZlbiVFMiU4MCU5OXQlMjBmb2xsb3dlZCUyMGNlcnRhaW4lMjBhY2NvdW50cy4lMjBCdXQlMjBpdCUyMGRvZXNuJUUyJTgwJTk5dCUyMGhhdmUlMjB0byUyMGJlLiUzQyUyRmJsb2NrcXVvdGUlM0UlMEEtJTIwJTNDYSUyMGhyZWYlM0QlMjJodHRwcyUzQSUyRiUyRmJsb2cudHdpdHRlci5jb20lMkYyMDE1JTJGbW9tZW50cy10aGUtYmVzdC1vZi10d2l0dGVyLWluLWFuLWluc3RhbnQtMCUzRnJlZiUzRHByb2R1Y3RodW50JTIyJTIwdGFyZ2V0JTNEJTIyX2JsYW5rJTIyJTNFVHdpdHRlciUyMGJsb2clM0MlMkZhJTNF[/vc_raw_html][vc_empty_space height=”5px”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_empty_space height=”5px”][vc_column_text]When opening up Twitter, there’s a new tab or a small lightning bolt icon added to the main header of the main page.

    Check the review movie from Drew Olanoff from TechCrunch below to get a better idea of what it exactly is. Here are few of most important additions to this new feature:

    • Browse through categories to get to the Moment that interests you most
    • On a mobile, simply swipe to see most relevant tweets related to this Moment. You might see photos, GIFs or videos.
    • On a mobile, there’s a progress bar showing you how many more tweets are there to be seen. If you saw the last one, you’ll see a short notification “You’re caught up”.
    • If more news are added to the Twitter Moments, you’ll be notified with a blue icon.
    • If you follow the Moment, it will tap directly into your Twitter timeline. You can share it and tweeting or favoring it by double tapping on the tweet.

     

    Today (October 6th) this feature is only accessible on Twitter mobile app in the US, however if you’re, like me, living outside the US, you can take a sneak peek at some of ready collections on their Twitter account Twitter Moments:
