A day after appointing Jack Dorsey as permanent chief executive, Twitter launches Moments, previously known as Project Lightening.
Moments is a new feature for finding news and entertainment on the messaging platform. It’s a curation feature with which users can look for specific streams of information, with tweets curated by an editorial team.
Moments is “the best of what’s happening on Twitter in an instant”, said Madhu Muthukumar, the product manager for Moments.
Every day, people share hundreds of millions of Tweets. Among them are things you can’t experience anywhere but on Twitter: conversations between world leaders and celebrities, citizens reporting events as they happen, cultural memes, live commentary on the night’s big game and many more. We know finding these only-on-Twitter moments can be a challenge, especially if you haven’t followed certain accounts. But it doesn’t have to be.
Twitter will partner with companies like New York Times, NASA and Vogue to curate tweets directly for Moments. The tweets will be visible by clicking the lightning icon on the browser or app.
The Moments feature is available across the globe on desktop, Android and iPhone.
