Twitter launches 'Explore'
So nearly four months after launching Moments in Ireland, Twitter has just announced that the new tab is going to be renamed ‘Explore’ and it will be your one stop shop to find trends, Moments, search and the best of live video all in one place.
The new feature should be rolling out to the iOS app any day now and the Android update is said to be coming in the next couple of weeks.
The introduction of this new tab can be seen as a clever move on Twitter’s behalf as it bridges the gap between two of its best offerings, its curated Moments story packages and their recently announced live video streaming capabilities and partnerships with the likes of the NBA.
You can read the full official press release below:
There are many ways to see what’s happening on Twitter. Outside of your timeline, trends show you what topics are being discussed right now, Moments capture the most popular stories so you can catch up, and search helps you find anything and everything.
Until today, you had to go to a few different places to find each of these experiences. As part of our continued efforts to make it easier to see what’s happening, we’re bringing all these together. Very soon, you’ll be able to find trends, Moments, search, and the best of live video, all within the new Explore tab.
Over the past year, we’ve been exploring different ways to make it simpler for people to find and use trends, Moments, and search. During our research process, people told us that the new Explore tab helped them easily find news, what’s trending, and what’s popular right now.
Nothing is going away – we’re just making it easier to find what you want.
Explore will begin rolling out today on Twitter for iOS, and in the coming weeks on Twitter for Android. Make sure you have the latest version of your app to check it out. And of course, we will continue to listen to your feedback to make Explore even better, based on your thoughts and some ideas we have up our sleeve!
