Why do tech companies love restricting new features to the United States? English is the foreing language to many countries around the world.

Apple decided to make its news reader app News exclusive to the US when the company launched iOS 9 in September. Now, Twitter comes to prove my point with its new section Moments.

“Moments helps you find the best of Twitter as easily as tapping an icon, regardless of who you follow. Just visit the new tab called Moments, where you will discover stories unfolding on Twitter,” says the microblogging network on a post released few hours ago.


The company goes on to state that “we’re introducing Moments to people in the US across Android, iPhone, and the desktop web.” Don´t worry though. If you live outside the “glorious” United States, you can still enjoy Moments.
