#ThursdayTip: How to Create Twitter Moments

Welcome to this week’s quick social media tip. This week I want to show you how to create Twitter Moments.

Twitter Moments are curated stories about what’s happening around the world—powered by Tweets. It’s easy to create your own story with Twitter Moments.

There are three ways to begin creating your own Moment via twitter.com.

You can access Moments through the Moments tab, your profile page, or through a Tweet detail.

Note: Moment creation is only available on twitter.com. It is no longer possible to create a Moment from your Twitter for iOS or Android app. 

To get started from the Moments tab follow these instructions:

From the Moments tab, click the Create new Moment button.

Click the Title your Moment field to give your Moment a name.

Click the Add a description field to type in a description for your Moment.

Choose Tweets to add to your Moment

From the Add Tweets to your Moment section at the bottom of the page, quickly access content to select Tweets from Tweets I’ve liked, Tweets by account, Tweet link, and Tweet search prompts. To add a Tweet to your Moment, click on the checkmark.

Click Set cover to choose a cover image from one of your selected Tweets, or to upload an image from your computer.

Drag your selected image to set a Mobile preview, click the Next button, then click the Save button.

As you can see this image is cut off in mobile preview, so I might want to change it for something that will show up better on a mobile device.  To change your selected image, hover over the cover image and click on Change cover media.

Once you have Tweets in your collection, click on the up or down arrow buttons to the right of a Tweet to move it up or down.

Click on the delete (x) button to remove a Tweet from your Moment.

Click the Finish later button at the top of the page to save a draft.When you are ready to make your Moment live, click on the Publish button at the top of the page.

You have the option to share Moments privately, making the Moment available to only those whom you share a link with.
