A way to cap­ture the top Mo­ments

The Washington Post Sunday - - BUSINESS - — Hay­ley Tsukayama

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.
