A way to capture the top Moments
For its devoted users, Twitter is a torrent of information in which to splash around to pick up everything from the latest news to the latest meme. But for those who aren’t die-hard tweeters, the social network and its reverse timeline of micromessages can be daunting. Enter a new major feature of Twitter: Twitter Moments. Moments uses human curators to highlight the hottest stuff on the network and delivers it in a neat package.
That said, Moments has its limits. Yes, it is way easier to flip through a handful of tweets and videos to get into a story than it is to sift through what Twitter serves up in the raw. But it can still be tedious to flip through a Moment — more editing may be required. Still, if you’ve been too scared of Twitter until now, this could be an easy on-ramp for you. Just tap the lightning bolt section of the normal Twitter app. Free, for iOS and Android users.
