Twitter has launched a major new feature today. It's called Moments, it exists as a new tab in Twitter's mobile apps or on its website, and it lets you easily follow what's going on at any time.
Moments delivers the top news tweets in an easy to consume format. You'll essentially find the most talked about stories of the day waiting for you to discover them through Moments. And everything that you see in Moments is independent of who you follow on Twitter.
Moments are categorized into News, Sports, Entertainment, and Fun. The stories you see are curated by Twitter along with select partners such as Bleacher Report, Buzzfeed, Entertainment Weekly, Fox News, Getty Images, Mashable, MLB, NASA, New York Times, Vogue, and the Washington Post.
The content in Moments is refreshed continuously throughout the day, and it features autoplaying videos, Vines, and GIFs, as well as big, immersive images. You can easily share a story you find in Moments, by tweeting it to your followers.
For certain things, such as sporting events or award shows, you'll get the option to blend the content in Moments into your timeline, so you'll be as up to date as possible.
Right now all of this only works in the US (on the Web and in Twitter's apps for iOS and Android), but Twitter has promised that Moments will be available in more places "in the coming weeks and months".
