Every day on Twitter, tweeps share thousands of millions of Tweets. Among them are things you can’t experience anywhere but on Twitter: conversations between influential leaders, celebrities and users reporting events as they happen around the world. Seeing these only on Twitter moments can be a challenge, especially if you haven’t followed certain accounts. Moments features the best stories happening on Twitter, curated by Twitter and its selected partners. Twitter launched Moments for tweeps to see wonderful storytelling and creativity.

How can you find Moments on Twitter?
When you click on the Moments tab you’ll switch on moments from Today. From the menu on the left, you can select moments categorized primarily by News, Entertainment, Sports and Fun.
- When you see a moment you’d like to explore, click it to view the entire collection of Tweets.
- Scroll through the collection and click on any of the Tweets to view the Tweet detail. From there you can reply, Retweet and favorite the Tweet.
- Click the X to return to the collection.
How can you follow a moment?
Yes! If you see the Follow button in a moment, you can click or tap it and Tweets related to it will appear in your Home timeline as the action unfolds in real time. Tweets that are inserted into your timeline have the Moments icon next to them. When the moment is complete, you’ll stop seeing Tweets in your Home timeline.
To start of with, Twitter officially introduced Moments in US only across Android, iPhone and the desktop. But as with Tweets, a Moment can be shared anywhere: if you discover a link to a Moment in a Tweet or DM, or embedded elsewhere, those of you outside the US can enjoy the same experience we’re rolling out today.
