As of today, Moments only works in the US on Android, iPhone, and the web. However, the company says  "as with Tweets, a Moment can be shared anywhere: if you discover a link to a Moment in a Tweet or DM, or embedded elsewhere, those of you outside the US can enjoy the same experience we’re rolling out today." Twitter has promised that Moments will be available in more places "in the coming weeks and months".

For some time now there have been issues with the growth of the social network, hence the brought back original founder, Jack Dorsey to become interim CEO in June. Since the return of Jack Dorsey, Twitter has experienced a 57% increase in shares.
