NEW YORK (AP) — Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey says the social media website’s stream of tweets will stay live and in real time.

BuzzFeed has updated its report with Dorsey’s response.

Twitter is facing slowing user growth and has been trying to make its service more appealing with a feature called Moments, which compiles photos, videos and messages about big news events.
