Twitter rolls out disappearing tweets, called Fleets

Twitter announced that its new feature, called Fleets, is now available globally. The microblogging platform first announced Fleets earlier this year

From now on, all Twitter users will be able to compose disappearing tweets that will only stick around for 24 hours. In the upcoming days, everyone globally will have Fleets on Twitter for iOS and Android.

“To help people feel more comfortable, we’ve been working on a lower pressure way for people to talk about what’s happening. Today, we’re launching Fleets so everyone can easily join the conversation in a new way – with their fleeting thoughts.” the company said in a statement

You can Fleet text, reactions to Tweets, photos or videos and customize your Fleets with various background and text options, Twitter says. In order to share a Tweet in a Fleet, tap the “Share” icon at the bottom of the Tweet and then tap, “Share in Fleet.” Then, add what you think about it with some text or emojis. 

Just like the story reply process on Instagram, you can respond to others’ fleets by tapping on one and sending a Direct Message or emoji to the author. 

Twitter says stickers and live broadcasting will also be available in Fleets soon.
