Buzzwords

Twitter Moments are a great way to share stories that unfold over time. Easy to curate and share.

Some background: Twitter Moments debuted in September 2016 as a free service that allows curation of favorite tweets as stories or moments. These moments can be promoted from member’s accounts and embedded on other websites.

As of October 2018 Twitter moments now must be edited on the laptop or desktop computer. We no longer have access via devices such as phones and tablets. To access your moments, use your laptop/desktop computer, go your profile page on Twitter, select the tab underneath the settings/profile image in the top right hand corner and select moments.

Reality check. Moments could cease to exist like so much other virtual detrus on the Internet. I use moments not so much for my personal account but from Planeta.com. It made it very easy to collect a sampling of great comments from conferences around the world that I could not attend in person. Thanks to Live Tweeters, it was easy to follow conservation and tourism events with some important lessons. So much of these tweets can be lost in the waterfall unless someone does something with them – in this case, me curating moments.

Official spin from Twitter: “Moments are curated stories showcasing the very best of what’s happening on Twitter. Our Moments guide is customized to show you current topics that are popular or relevant, so you can discover what is unfolding on Twitter in an instant.” – Twitter

Technical Tips
Using different tools on Twitter is different – rearranging is different/sometimes easier/ sometimes harder depending if you edit using a laptop, tablet or phone.
