Twitter replaces the Moments tab with Explore
Twitter's central Moments tab, which once terrorized obsessive-compulsive users with a blue dot that never went away, is going away. The company said today that the tab, which highlights collections of notable tweets curated by Twitter editors, would be replaced by a new tab called Explore. Moments will still be featured in the new tab, but they'll be de-emphasized in favor of trending topics and search. Explore was first spotted in testing in October.
Explore brings together trends, Moments, and search in a manner that closely resembles Instagram's Explore tab. (As on Instagram, it is represented by a magnifying glass icon.) It can also display newsworthy live videos at the top of the feed. Previously, Twitter search had its own button next to the tweet composer, and trends appeared in a list underneath the search bar when you tapped it.
