Twitter Moments have become an invaluable tool for curation and publication. What's missing? Stats. Difficult to know who or how many are viewing. Also, there's no way to find out if one's tweet has been curated in someone else's moment.

History: Twitter Moments debuted in September 2016 as a free Twitter service that allows curation of favorite tweets as stories or moments. These can be promoted from member's accounts and embedded on other websites. The service was first released in 2015 with moments curated by Twitter.

At any point readers can share the Moment by tapping the 'Share' icon.

Official spin: "Moments are curated stories showcasing the very best of what’s happening on Twitter. Our Moments guide is customized to show you current topics that are popular or relevant, so you can discover what is unfolding on Twitter in an instant." - Twitter

Before Twitter Moments .... replacing Storify for stories with ample coverage on Twitter. The advantage of Storify is that links from all sites can be included and Twitter Moments is focused on ... Twitter.
