A sample “Moment” — a collection of curated Harvard Business Review tweets (iPhone)

Twitter is one of my FAVORITE research tools — and their recent addition of the ability for all of us to create “collections” of tweets makes it that much easier to collect and share content!

Introduction to Twitter Moments — creating your own:

“Moments, which collect content from accounts Tweeting about that particular subject as they appear, even if the user doesn’t follow the other accounts. For now, the feature is only available in Twitter’s desktop format, but it willreportedly soon come to mobile apps.”

“Moments is rolling out now for everyone, and Twitter has also released a how-to guide — as a Moment, naturally — to help you get started.”

The final product…

1 — Open Twitter in your Desktop browser, select the “Moments” tab

There are a few obvious immediate applications for this feature:

  • A collection of a specific user’s tweets, such as above, that you want to share with your organization (daily news, tips, specific topics, industry information, etc.)
  • Collection of tweets around an event — a conference, business meeting, etc.
  • A collection of tips that a group may be interested in — say weekly personal development tips
  • Training — a collection of tweets around a specific selected training topic for an organization or a group.
