Twitter has introduced a new disappearing tweets tool, called Fleet.

Twitter has recently launched a new feature on their platform, named “fleets“. Fleets are tweets that disappear after 24 hours, similar to what has been introduced on Snapchat and Instagram. Twitter was already testing these features for its platform in countries like Brazil, Italy, India, and South Korea. As per the official statement from Twitter’s Design Direction, Joshua Harris, “Some of you tell us that tweeting is uncomfortable because it feels so public, so permanent, and like there’s so much pressure to rack up retweets and likes

Because they disappear from view after a day, fleets helped people feel more comfortable sharing personal and casual thoughts, opinions, and feelings.” Twitter has mentioned that it has been listening to its users and will also be adding more features and options on its platform to deal with issues like unwanted messages and harassment. The new Fleet feature can include text, photos, and videos. The feature can be accessed from the top of users’ home timelines on Twitter and on the sender’s profile. 

The company has also made it clear that the new feature is subject to the same rules as tweets. The feature is a step from Twitter towards handling manipulated content on Twitter. The company is also working on a new live audio feature called Spaces and it will be brought out to users in the beta stage as well. As per what they said, “Given all of the potential for abuse within audio spaces, we are going to be making it available first to women and historically marginalized communities.
