A ‘moment’ is a feature which began with “influencers, accomplices and brands” – shows up as a different tab on a client’s profile and causes them monitor stories and breaking news by curating related substance.
“While people were able to view Moments from select partners before, they can now make and share Moments and tell their own story”
Twitter India said in a statement.
In addition to the ‘Moments features’, Twitter is also making it easier for people to discover latest Moments across news, entertainment and sports categories with the new Explore tab featuring Moments by Twitter’s Curation team and Moments India partners.
This ‘moments’ feature helps to people explore and understand the best of Twitter, regardless of who they follow, in an easy-to-use storytelling format.
“People can simply visit the Explore tab on Twitter or Twitter Lite, where they will discover stories unfolding on Twitter every day,” the company said.
As you click into a Moment, you’re taken to an introduction with a title and description.
Twitter stated that “Start scrolling to dive right into the story, with immersive images and autoplaying videos and GIFs. The progress bar at the bottom indicates how much more each Moment has to offer.”
You can engage directly with a Tweet inside a Moment with buttons to retweet and like.
“Like a Moment by hitting the heart button. At the end of a Moment, click the share button to Tweet your thoughts, and send it out to your followers”
the company added.
As the new stories emerge, Twitter will add new Moments to these stories to the Explore tab.
Twitter supports 42 languages including Hindi, Bengali, Kannada, Tamil, Gujarati, and Marathi, with over 300 million users globally.
