First referred to as “project lightening” when it was still in development, the “Moments” feature is twitters newest update. Moments allows for people to focus in on news stories, current happening, and other things going on in the world in a more personal and in depth experience, rather than a snippet seen on the traditional timeline. It is basically a real-time newsfeed of events right there on twitter.
Moments is about to become the most user-facing thing about Twitter, so Twitter has to decide how to yield this new power. Because like it or not, that curatorial power—of Moments themselves, and of which ones people see—is immense. – Wired Magazine
To access moments, you must first have the most recent update of twitter. After you update is all set, all you have to do on the twitter app home page is tap the new lightening button in the bottom row of toggle options, and there you have it; Moments is in the palm of your hand. The layout is that of an online newspaper or magazine crossed over with that traditional twitter style. There are a lot of interactive videos and photos to scroll through, and number of other features to play around with! After checking it out myself I would say it’s a pretty cool new tool for twitter.
