Twitter this week launched Moments, the best of what’s happening on Twitter in an instant.
Launching initially in the US only, Moments helps users find the best of Twitter as easily as tapping an icon – regardless of who you follow.
Twitter explains how Moments works:
[blockquote style=”1″]Tapping on the new lightning bolt tab on your phone opens a list of Moments that matter now. As new stories emerge throughout the day, we continue to update this list. Looking for more? You can also swipe through to topics including “Entertainment” and “Sports” to find more stories from the past few days.
To start, we’re introducing Moments to people in the US across Android, iPhone, and the desktop web. But as with Tweets, a Moment can be shared anywhere: so if you are in Australia where Moments hasn’t launched yet and you discover a link to a Moment in a Tweet or DM, or embedded elsewhere, you can enjoy the same experience we’re rolling out today.
And we’re hard at work to bring this same functionality to Australia and other places in the coming months.[/blockquote]
