A Moment for you
Twitter is taking a leap into content curation with their new "Moments" feature. Seeing that media companies such as Blavity and Buzzfeed have succeeded in taking tweets beyond their singular, ephemeral existences and curating them for secondary consumption, it’s clear that the people in Twitter towers have been inspired to join in. The subtle balance between mere delivery and full curation of the many millions of tweets written daily is an interesting challenge and one that, in my opinion, should be approached with creativity and not a reliance on old media models. As a user of Twitter, but also as someone who is incredibly passionate about empowering people with information and producing compelling narratives, I'm always simultaneously excited and concerned by developments on the platform. Nevertheless, I do think that Moments could be a thriving part of the experience for Twitter users and I have a few thoughts on how this might be possible.
