Moments is to Twitter what Stories are to Snapchat.
Earlier this year, after many delays, Twitter introduced its 'Moments' feature in a hope to attract more users to the social network service. The feature then was only available to web users but now Twitter has announced that the feature has been added to its mobile app as well. To explain in short, Moments is to Twitter what Stories are to Snapchat. But in reality, it never gained that much of an attention.
Moments allow users to add their favorite tweets (from the one they follow or their own tweets) from anywhere at one place with pictures if needed. To create Moments on the web, you select tweets from your favorites by account or by Twitter search or even by a link and drop it in the Moments section by selecting 'Add to Moment' option from the menu.
Unfortunately, the feature never turned out the way Twitter wanted it to be so now the famous social network website has finally introduced the service to mobile platform as well to revive all that have been lost before.
Similar to the web, you can search for tweets, add the ones from your favorites, add your own via mobile as well. Further, you can also change the background, reorder the tweets and even remove them before clicking 'Done'. Lastly, you can choose the cover image and title for your Moment and 'Publish' it to the public.
The new feature as been rolled out on both Android and iOS Operating System and if not now you will soon see the new option to 'Add Moments' with detailed instructions inside the app.
The new features will be added to apps on Android as well as iOS.
The famous micro-blogging website has been going through ups and downs recently with the latest one being the resignation of MD Parminder Singh.
A couple of days back Rishi Jaitly India head of Twitter had also resigned.
People with the latest version of Twitter app can see these features in Direct Message conversations.
Twitter seemed to weather its latest quarter much better with growth, but continues to streamline itself, possibly for a suitor.
Back in May, Twitter first announced its plans to implement such a change.
Highlights feature gives a summary of the most interesting things on your feed.
On Wednesday Twitter increased the direct message limit to 10,000 characters from the existing 140 across different platforms.
The new feature takes the best tweets of a user's network and works similarly as Facebook's news feed.
In the morning when Twitter users were logging into their account the microblogging service's welcome page said "Something is technically wrong."
