Twitter Unveils New Curated Tweets Product

Twitter Inc. unveiled a new product, called Moments, Tuesday which will show the user curated tweets around certain news events or subjects. "Moments helps you find the best of Twitter as easily as tapping an icon - regardless of who you follow," said a post on the Twitter blog. The product has its own tab and a lightning bolt icon on the Twitter platform. It was previously known as Project Lightning. Twitter said most of the "moments" right now are put together by a curation team at Twitter, but some are created by news partners such as Buzzfeed, Fox News and Vogue. The product will be available to users in the U.S. on Android, iPhones and desktop computers. Twitter shares were down less than 1% before the market open. The move comes a day after Twitter announced Jack Dorsey as its chief executive officer.
