Twitter Moments launches in Mexico

Mexican Twitter users can now enjoy Moments in Spanish, almost nine months after the feature launched in the United States.

I’ve been playing around with Moments, and it works just like its English counterpart. You get the same lighting bolt in the menu; tap on a moment and you will see a stream of images and tweets that you can explore by moving sideways.

Select a tweet and you will be redirected to the news article in question – that if the tweet has an embedded link. There’s also a section bar at the top, or you can scroll down to see the different areas of information.

I have to admit Moments has a visual appealing, and that made me want to use it since day one; nevertheless it’s been criticised for also being used as a marketing tool.

I don’t know what took Twitter this long to launch Moments in Mexico. Quick fact: 77 million people in Mexico have a mobile phone. Let’s see how the Mexican Internet market reacts to Moments. I bet it will be a success.

If Moments is still not available in your country and want to bypass Twitter’s geographical restrictions, here’s my tutorial on how to turn the feature on wherever you are in the world.
