Twitter launches Instagram Stories-like feature, Fleets

6/10/2020 4:57:37 PMVisitors: 79

Twitter  in India is testing out a new feature similar to the Instagram Stories. Called Fleets, these tweets will disappear after 24 hours. Also, there will be no Likes, Retweets, or public replies to these tweets. "We learned from research that people don’t Tweet because Tweets are public, feel permanent, and display the number of Retweets and Likes. We hope Fleets will empower many more people to express themselves more freely," said the company in a statement. India is the third country globally where Twitter is rolling out this feature to test. The other two are Brazil and Italy. "There need to be more ways to have conversations on Twitter with less pressure and various controls. Fleets are fast and familiar. People can tap on their own avatar to start, add text or media and hit send. That’s it, that’s how one Fleets," added the company.“India is important for Twitter since it is one of our largest and fastest-growing audience markets globally. We are excited to bring the Fleets experiment to India and make it one of the first three countries in the world to experience this new product. From the test in India, we’ll learn how adding a new mode of conversation changes the way Indians engage on Twitter. It’ll also be interesting to see if it further amplifies the diversity of usage by allowing people to share what they’re thinking in a way that is light-touch and light-hearted,” said Manish Maheshwari, MD, Twitter IndiaFleets from the accounts one follows will always appear on top of one’s timeline. Users can see who’s seen their Fleet by looking underneath a post. They can tap on someone’s avatar to see what the person has posted since their last Twitter visit. One will also be able to find an account’s Fleets by looking at their profile page.How to create a new Fleet: Tap the avatar on the top left of your profile to create a new Fleet* Start typing or tap a media icon to add photo/s or video/s * Tap ‘Fleet’ to post To view someone’s Fleet: Tap an avatar to see their latest Fleets* Swipe down to see newer Fleets and up to see older Fleets* Swipe left or right to see Fleets from other accounts you followTo engage with your followers on Fleets:Buttons to reply and react are available when Direct Messages (DMs) are open* Followers can reply privately via DM or quickly react with an emoji, and continue the conversation privately in DMs
