Every few months, another company decides to copy Snapchat’s Stories feature, and this week it was the popular social media platform Twitter.

Dubbed ‘Fleets’, Twitter has been testing the feature which is its new own version of stories on Instagram, Facebook, WhatsApp, and Snapchat. Users on the app will now be allowed to share fleeting thoughts every day, Fleets will last for 24 hours and then disappear.

Just like all other stories on different platforms, Twitter will let you capture photos and videos from the Fleets camera, and share from your camera roll as well. You can also customize your Fleets with background and text colors. If you’re seeing someone’s Fleets you can react to it, and also reply to them. These replies will appear on Twitter’s DM.

With these mixed reactions, safety and harassment has taken the forefront of the Fleet Debate given the only way to reply to a fleet is via the Direct Messages.


Fleet Away.
