Twitter Moments is finally available for use on mobile devices and it’s being widely considered as having the potential to really elevate activity on the social network. Twitter Moments was first introduced as a tool and source of content moderated by individuals at the firm before becoming available to specific brands, celebrities and other influencers. Moments became available to any and all users on the platform this fall, however, its network-wide launch was reserved for its desktop site.
It’s important to note that the mobile version of Twitter Moments isn’t simply a phone and tablet-friendly version of its desktop counterpart. Mobile Moments stands out with a much more streamlined and straightforward process and a number of additional options including the ability to reorganize or remove individual tweets from a Moment and the ability to change background colors.
Why Use Moments
Twitter Moments is your avenue to tell a full story via a series of multiple tweets in a thread. Unlike tweeting your story part by part as you did in the past, your tweets in a Moment cannot get lost between the stream of other tweets in a users’ feed. It’s a special feature because marketers and everyday users alike can curate collections of the tweets they love or the tweets they’d like to highlight to end up with even richer results. A well-curate Moment is more interesting and more engaging than any individual tweet in the collection itself!
What’s more, it’s a creative opportunity to get more out of Twitter when it comes to aesthetic considerations. Moments can be visually stunning and they’re able to be personalized with such details as mandatory custom titles and cover images.
