Twitter Moments Now On Mobile

Since Moments was unveiled last September, Twitter users could not create a Moment on a mobile device. Twitter Moments could only be created on the web using computers.

But a series of tweets posted by Twitter today, Nov. 30, will change all that.

"With Moments, you can bring together favorite Tweets to tell richer stories - rolling out on mobile starting today."

"For everyone who wants to make a Moment - starting today you can! Creators everywhere can now tell stories with Tweets."

Before this announcement, Twitter users could only use this storytelling feature once he or she has access to a laptop or desktop computer. But Twitter did promise that "mobile support would arrive soon" according to Tech Crunch. The company has fulfilled its promise to the delight of twitter users who like telling a story.

Twitter Moments can be used by subscribers to curate and create stories. To create a Moment, the user starts off with a single tweet that he or she wants to add. Look for the downward arrow in the details of the tweet. Click on it to add that tweet to a Moment. For every tweet that the user wants to add to that Moment, just keep on clicking on the downward arrow.

This collection of tweets can be rearranged or reordered. The user can also search for certain tweets by using a keyword or by checking the ones that they composed or liked. After selecting the tweets, the user can then select a background before publishing the Moment.

Twitter Moments was actually launched a year ago as a response to its dwindling fan base. It was an attempt to challenge Snapchat Stories and other apps that allowed users to create short stories.

Twitter is going through a rough patch lately and was even forced to shut down Vine, one of its more popular services.

Moments was supposed to stir new interest on Twitter but has apparently failed. With its availability on mobile devices, Twitter is hoping it will work this time around.
