A tweak to Twitter's top tab has many tweeters so twisted that it became a trending term. Seems the social net is so stressed about slowing subscriptions and slacking stock prices that it's scrambling to boost it's new thing, the Moments feature.
But Moments, which is a compilation of tweets around certain topics -- including sponsored ones -- isn't catching fire as hope. That's likely why Twitter developers bumped the well-loved Notifications button over to the right, putting it behind Moments.
The anger is best described in a sample of Tweets:
Twitter put "Moments" where I'm used to "Notifications," because tricking users is a sustainable design choice pic.twitter.com/VDCzs2e6Pl-- Tommy Maranges (@tommygents) December 4, 2015
How do I move my "Moments" button from where it currently is over to the literal trash?-- Soren Bowie (@Soren_Ltd) December 4, 2015
Remove Twitter moments from the webpage interface. https://t.co/TXtzPqNvP1-- Randi Lee Harper (@randileeharper) December 4, 2015
Twitter? Twitter. Swapping the tabs won't make me want to use "Moments." Stop trying to make "Moments" happen. It's never gonna happen.-- Nash (@Nash076) December 4, 2015
Did Twitter switch the location of the "Moments" tab just so it might get accidentally used for once? pic.twitter.com/kT8AY6a2G3-- Nati Casanova (@TheZombiUnicorn) December 4, 2015
