Twitter launched Moments in certain regions a few months back, and now it's officially out in Ireland.
Moments is a curated feed of news stories which are put together by partners and editors within Twitter. It's basically a quick way to get caught up with everything that's currently happening with a more focused experience than the regular way you browse Twitter. They're media rich with streaming video and GIFs and can be interacted to expand or follow the Moment.
Moments appears as a lightning bolt tab on both desktop and mobile and has the advantage of showing you content from outlets which you might not already follow on Twitter. Partners in Ireland include RTE, The Irish Times, The Irish Independent, Newstalk, TodayFM and Entertainment.ie. More partners will be added in the future, and people can create their own Moments.
Commenting on the launch of the Moments tab in Ireland, Mark Little, Managing Director, Twitter Dublin said: “For ten years, Twitter has been a natural home for a new style of Irish storyteller: fast, fun, and full of character. With Moments, we’ve made it easier to find uniquely Irish stories on Twitter, in more depth and breadth. Moments will bring together the multiple Tweets, videos, images and points of view that make up the stories we’re talking about, sometimes before we’re even talking about them.”
Moments are updated throughout the day as stories evolve and unfold, get started over here.
