Twitter's new feature which is called 'Happening Now' will group the tweets as per events or topics. Starting from sports, the feature will expand to other sections as well including Entertainment and current news.

In a post, Twitter mentioned, "Feel the roar of the crowd, no matter where you are. We're rolling out a new way to see what's happening now, starting with sports! Available on Android and iOS starting today."

This feature will highly benefit the new users who are unaware about where to look for a particular kind of information. Similar to the platform's Twitter Moments, the feature groups the latest Tweets but the moments only showcase stories of latest happenings.

'Moments' feature of Twitter usually shares more visuals including featuring images and videos. Instagram's "Stories" is a common example of Twitter moments which is customised to show the users news of the moment, which is getting popularising on Twitter.

A similar feature was updated for the logged-out users last year where they could check out the various categories from Sports, Entertainment and such. Now, the feature will be available for the logged-in users as well.

Twitter is currently also working on the 'Save for Later' booking feature as it was noted that many users have to like or retweet a post to bookmark them. The feature will work towards overcoming the hurdle.

The micro-blogging website is relying on the community feedback to bring out the feature. The #SaveForLater hashtag was encouraged by Twitter to get a response from users.
