With Moments, ‘Twitter just reinvented the newspaper’

Twitter just did something important with the launch of its news curation feature Moments, Ben Thompson writes: “Twitter just reinvented the newspaper. It’s not just any newspaper though — it has the potential to be the best newspaper in the world.” In the same way that newspapers curate the most important stories for its readers on the front page, Twitter is breaking down stories into Moments and telling users what’s important. Twitter’s big advantage over individual publishers’ websites, Thompson writes, is that it can include the best components from news organizations and normal Twitter users to create its Moments.
