Twitter Launches Moments
Twitter has launched Moments. “Moments, as the new product is called, surfaces the day’s most talked-about stories in a new section of the app. It’s a magazine-like view of Twitter that works even if you’ve never followed a single person. It represents Twitter’s best — and maybe last — hope of attracting a large new base of casual users who want to enjoy the service without having to figure out its unique quirks and lingo.” It was all stories I vaguely knew about thanks to Facebook’s right-column “trending” thing. It sure would be nice if Facebook made it easier to surface the links shared by the people I actually follow. Don’t expect I’ll use this at all, but then again I’m not the target audience.
