Twitter expands the availability of ‘Moments’ feature to all its users

Popular microblogging service Twitter has announced that it has commenced the rollout of its 'Twitter Moments' storytelling feature to all its users.

The Moments feature was first introduced by Twitter in October last year, initially making it available only to a few publishers, including BuzzFeed and The New York Times. The feature basically unfolds a curated news slideshow which enables publishers to create stories which comprise tweets; thereby giving their audience the access to the best tweets on a particular subject.

Twitter had said in August that it has plans underway to expand the availability of the Moments feature to more brands and influencers, and eventually to all Twitter users. The company made good on its promise on Wednesday when it said that the Moments feature is being rollout to all its users.

The announcement of the opening up of the Twitter Moments feature to all Twitter users implies that anyone using the Twitter microblogging platform will be able to create their own stories using tweets and photos.

Earlier, when Twitter announced its plans to make the Moments feature available more widely to publishers and Twitter users, the company had said: "By extending this creative format to more people, and eventually to everyone on Twitter, we are giving people a new and dynamic way to tell their stories."
