Twitter is removing its Instagram stories clone fleets from the app just a few months after introducing the feature which lets users on the app share fleeting thoughts every day for 24 hours before they disappear then disappear.

“we’re removing Fleets on August 3, working on some new stuff.” Twitter said in a statement, “we’re sorry or you’re welcome.”

Twitter Fleets were received with mixed reactions by users on the app and had become a popular place to share job opportunities, promote each other and of course start DMs.

The move by Twitter to do away with fleets comes just days after users complained after noticing that the fleet section at the top of the app is now showing random fleets from people they didn’t follow.

“We had big hopes for Fleets, but now it’s time to say goodbye and take flight with other ideas. Starting August 3, Fleets will no longer be available.” Twitter wrote
