After rolling out their new Twitter Moments curated news service in the US during October of this year, the new feature has now arrived in the UK.
Allowing Twitter users to have an easy way to keep up-to-date with trending topics and news items. Twitter is now currently testing the Moments service throughout the UK and from today Twitter will begin rolling out the lightning symbol to its applications and website.
Twitter explains a little more about the inspiration and features of the new Moments curated news service.
Every day, people share hundreds of millions of Tweets. Among them are things you can’t experience anywhere but on Twitter: conversations between world leaders and celebrities, citizens reporting events as they happen, cultural memes, live commentary on the night’s big game, and many more.
We know finding these only-on-Twitter moments can be a challenge, especially if you haven’t followed certain accounts. But it doesn’t have to be. Moments helps you find the best of Twitter as easily as tapping an icon – regardless of who you follow. Just visit the new tab called Moments, where you will discover stories unfolding on Twitter.
Tapping on the new lightning bolt tab on your phone opens a list of Moments that matter now. As new stories emerge throughout the day, we continue to update this list. Looking for more? You can also swipe through to topics including “Entertainment” and “Sports” to find more stories from the past few days
