Twitter rolls out Moments in Australia

New lightning bolt icon opens collection of Tweets pertaining to 4 different categories

Australians are the first in the Asia-Pacific region to experience Moments, Twitter’s new feature that collects trending Tweets specific to the categories of news, sports, entertainment and fun.

Users can tap on the new lightning bolt icon that opens the list which is updated as new Tweets or information becomes available.

Particular Moments that update frequently such as an awards show, breaking news or live sporting events, can be followed and updates will blend within a user’s timeline stream.

Twitter said in addition to its in-house team that curate specific Moments, it will enable partners to contribute.

Local contributing partners currently include the ABC, The Project, the NRL, the AFL, BuzzFeed and Channel V.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
