The Twitter Moments feature will soon be removed from the Twitter App
This whole decision was taken keeping in consideration that the Twitter Moments feature seemed to have no use with the Mobile Device Platforms.
Twitter Moments to be removed from Android and iOS platforms. Twitter announced this recently.
On October 23, we’re removing the ability to create Moments on the Twitter for iOS or Android apps. When features aren't used as often, we’ll remove them, so we can focus on building other products you’ll love.

The company states that making Moments will still be possible from the desktop web version of Twitter. All of the Moments could still be accessed and viewed from the smart devices.
Might Come Across some better Features
In a series of tweets this afternoon, the company explained that when features aren’t used very often, it removes them. This, in turn, becomes an effort to focus on building other features.
In this instance, support for creating Twitter Moments through the iOS and Android applications has been around since 2016, so it’s certainly very transparent to see Twitter pulling the plug on the feature.
Twitter states support for creating Moments on iOS and Android will officially be removed on October 23rd. However, users will still be able to view Moments on iOS and Android.
The Option will still be available to access via Twitter Desktop site
On October 23rd, we’re removing the ability to create Moments on the Twitter for iOS or Android apps.
When features aren’t used as often, we’ll remove them, so we can focus on building other products you’ll love.
For those unfamiliar, Twitter Moments are what the company refers to as “curated stories about what’s happening around the world.”
Essentially, they are collections of tweets and media content bind together based on a particular topic.
The Recent redesign didn’t make to the Future
Interestingly enough, Twitter announced a renewed focus on Moments back in July, but that doesn’t seem to have lasted for too long.
