Twitter is by far my favorite social network. Since joining in 2008, I’ve used Twitter to connect with thousands of people who share similar interests and to stay up-to-date with the world at large. It’s the first app I open when I wake up and usually the last one I close before going to bed.
I think over the years since using the service that I’ve done a decent job of building a list of interesting accounts to follow. This ensures that my personal timeline is always up-to-date with topics I care about. That said, I do really enjoying using Moments on the web and can’t wait to start using it regularly with the Windows 10 app.
The coolest feature of Moments is the ability to follow an event and get the best Tweets about that event delivered to my timeline. This lasts for the duration of the event and automatically stops following when it’s over.
For example, I followed the Moment related to the Lions vs. Packers. It was a great way to see tweets about the game appear in my timeline – including that insane game Hail Mary to secure a Packers victory.
