Twitter Introduces ‘Moments’ ➝

Madhu Muthukumar, writing on Twitter’s weblog:

Today, most moments are assembled by our curation team, and some are contributed by partners like Bleacher Report, Buzzfeed, Entertainment Weekly, Fox News, Getty Images, Mashable, MLB, NASA, New York Times, Vogue and the Washington Post. While we’re working with a small group of partners now, we plan to expand it in the future. The Twitter community continually surprises us with wonderful storytelling and creativity, so we look forward to seeing new and exciting uses of Moments from more partners soon.

Moments is a way for users to essentially “follow” news stories and events. This is the kind of feature I like to see from Twitter. It plays to their strength of being a real time platform in which each tweet contributes to a larger whole.

The feature should be available today in Twitter’s official client for iOS and Android, as well as the web.
