Twitter Opens 'Moments,' Its Once-Hidden Tweet Collection Feature, to All Users

Once upon a time, Twitter Moments was a closely guarded fortress surrounded by moats of publishers vying to get a spot on the throne. The feature, which aims to be "the best of Twitter in an instant," was only available to Twitter employees and certain publishing partners.  But that changed today when Twitter announced Moments is now open for all users to create their own masterpieces. Previously, Moments was mostly a way for news publishers to showcase many tweets in short succession (think Storify, but within the Twitter website's ecosystem itself). Categorized into sections like Entertainment, Fun, Sports and hyper-topical sections like Election 2016 or NFL, social media editors around the world painstakingly created Moments surrounding trending topics.  Now that the feature is available to all users, you'll be able to go to your profile and create a new Moment. Then you can search for any relevant tweets you want to include. Moments supports GIFs, Vines, static images and, of course, videos. Add them to your Moment, click Publish and you're good to go. Twitter even created its own Moment and snappy video to explain how to use the new service: For everyone who wants to make a Moment – starting today you can! Creators everywhere can now tell stories with Tweets. pic.twitter.com/ZJtNBoTPWf — Twitter (@twitter) September 28, 2016 The new feature could be an easy way to collect your favorite tweets during an awards show, keep track of all the tweets that...
