How to Create a Moment on Twitter?

Create a Moment on Twitter – Guide

You should know that you can’t create Moments on your mobile device, Android, or iOS. It only works on twitter.com, the desktop version.

If you’re on a computer, follow the steps below to create a Moment on Twitter:

1. Click on “More” on the left-hand side menu

Click on "More" on the left-hand side menu
Click on “More” on the left-hand side menu

Once you open Twitter, you’ll land on your Feed, where you’ll see all the tweets of the people you follow. To create a Moment, you’ll need to access a menu.

Look to the left-hand side of the Twitter page, and you’ll see the “More” button just above the “Tweet” button.

Click on it.

2. Select “Moments

Select "Moments"
Select “Moments”

Once you tap on the “More” button, you’ll see a new dropdown menu appear. Look for the “Moments” button inside the menu and click on it.

This will take you to a new page where you can create Moments.

3. Select “Create new

Select "Create new"
Select “Create new”

On the “Moments” page, you’ll have the option to create a new Moment. Click on “Create new” to begin the creation process.

You’ll need to select a few combined tweets to form a Moment, so it’s good to have them prepared already.

4. Select several tweets

Now you’re in the Moment creation screen, and you must select a handful of tweets to create the Moment.

On the upper bar, you’ll see several options like “Tweets you’ve liked,” “Tweets by account,” and more.

I recommend choosing “Tweets you’ve liked,” but if you already have some tweets in mind and they’re elsewhere, look for them.

Once you find them, click on the checkmarks to select the tweets.

Then, click on the “Add” button at the top of the Tweets section. This will add the tweets to your Moment.

5. Click on the cover image symbol

Now, you need to add a cover image. Click on the cover image symbol on the right-hand side. This will open a new window where you’ll need to paste a link to a Tweet image.

Or you can use any of the images in the tweets you’ve added to the Moment. Select the image, and you’re done with the cover image.

6. Click on the blue pen symbol next to the “Add a title” menu

Now, you need to add a title and a description of your Moment. To do this, click on the blue pen symbol on the right-hand side, next to the “Add a title” heading.

This will open a new window where you can edit your title and description.

7. Enter a new title and description

Add a title for your moment in the “Title” text box, and then add a description in the “Description” box.

When you’re done, click “Save” in the upper-right corner to save the changes and move with the Moment creation process.

8. Click on “Publish

Click on "Publish"
Click on “Publish”

When you’re done editing the title and description and have nothing else to customize, it’s time to publish your Moment on Twitter.

Look in the top-right corner for the “Publish” button and hit it. This won’t publish the Moment right away!

9. Choose a Visibility option

Before you publish the Moment, you’ll have the option of choosing Visibility. Who gets to see your Moment?

Do you want to make a private Moment just for yourself, or do you want it to be public? Select an option and then hit “Publish” to post this Moment on Twitter.

Conclusion

In short, you can only post Moments on Twitter on a computer. The Twitter app on mobile devices doesn’t let you post Moments.

To post a Moment on Twitter, you need to:

  1. Click on “More” on the left-hand sidebar
  2. Select “Moments
  3. Click on “Create new
  4. Select multiple tweets to include in the Moment
  5. Add a cover image
  6. Add a title
  7. Choose a Visibility option
  8. Publish the Moment

Choose any tweet, include it in your Moment, find a cool cover image, write a short and to-the-point description, and publish it!

You’ll be the center of attention with a nice-looking and concise Moment that no one else thought about.

What are Twitter Moments used for?

People post Moments on Twitter to bring something to the public’s attention. You might want to post a Moment when something important is going on.

You gather multiple tweets about the same topic, research, choose a fitting cover image, add a good description, and post the Moment.

Or, if you want to remind people about something important that’s happened, you can use a Moment.

Those who don’t know much about the event will understand what it’s about from your Moment.

That’s because a Moment on Twitter contains multiple tweets that share much more information than a single tweet.

Even a celebratory moment is worth a Moment on Twitter. Like when your husband proposed to you or when you’ve had your son’s first birthday.

These moments are worth sharing on Twitter!

How many tweets should you include in a Twitter Moment?

Twitter officially recommends that you include ten tweets at most in a Moment. More than ten tweets will be too long and boring.

You need to captivate your followers and transmit an idea with great impact. You should be able to do this in 10 tweets at most.

Moreover, you shouldn’t only limit yourself to text tweets. I recommend including GIFs, pictures, videos, infographics, and other relevant tweets.

The more diversity in your Moment, the better. People will remember it more clearly and will tell others about it.

Twitter has a how-to guide on Moments, where they explain more about constructing the perfect Moment on Twitter.

You should read their guide if you want to learn more about Moments on Twitter!
