Twitter launched their curated news service, Moments in the US back in October of this year, and now it has finally made the service available to those who reside in the UK.
The service allows Twitter users to keep up-to-date with a range of trending topics as well as with news items.
Currently Twitter is testing the Moments service in the UK, rolling it out to all users from today via a new lightning symbol on its applications and website.
Twitter explained more about Moments in the following statement:
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
