“While people were able to view ‘Moments’ from select partners before, they can now make and share ‘Moments’ and tell their own story. People can simply visit the Explore tab on Twitter or Twitter Lite, where they will discover stories unfolding on Twitter every day,” Twitter India said, in a statement.
“This gives Indians the opportunity to tell their stories globally, sharing the wonderful things that happen every day in the country with the rest of the world,” the statement added.
