Twitter reinvents itself and joins the path of Instagram, Facebook, Whatsapp and Snapchat stories but with a different twist. Thus appear the Moments of Twitter.
It is different from other social networks since it is not a personalized story which uses Instagram or Facebook, but is more like a collection of highlights for “trending topics”. In this tab, therefore, we will find popular and relevant contents that will change day by day and that as indicated by the name itself will last “moments”.
In Spain this option has just arrived but in the United States it has been active since October 2015 and in Mexico since 2016. Still arriving, some media like EL PAÍS already offer on twitter their own selection of news using the moments.
Twitter explained that it is the perfect tool to get used to this social network for new users. “Many people do not know who to follow. Moments are the best option to understand Twitter without having to get lost in hashtags and retweets”- says Pepe López de Ayala, (General Director of Twitter Spain.)
Moments of Twitter work as an organizer of tweets and highlighted topics ordered in the social network known for maximum speed of news updating.
And although there are certain Moments of Twitter and that function as news, any user from his account can publish a moment for his followers, another thing is that if they achieve a big response, they will also appear as highlights.
How to get to the Moments section?
In order to reach the moments section just click on the correspondent section in the menu in the application. In the computer browser it appears at the top next to the notifications. In the mobile it changes according to the operating system:
- In IOS we must go to the wheel that appears in our profile and there select the option of Moments.
- In ANDROID it is simpler since we will find it in the same way as in the browser, next to the notifications.
The moments are customizable: you can change title, links, add other tweets and many other options. Stay tuned to the blog because soon we will explain how to make a twitter moment correctly.
In addition, once done the moment you can share it by a tweet, inserting it in a web or in other ways you prefer.
