Stories are coming to Twitter soon
After seeing the popularity of stories on different apps, finally, Twitter has started working on its own version of Stories. The company calls it Fleets.
Twitter has started testing Fleets in Brazil with a limited number of users. The feature lets users share content that will disappear entirely after 24 hours. No other user can like or retweet Fleets. Replies will be sent to DM.
Fleets are based primarily on text but users can also add videos, GIFs or photos. If you share a Fleet, your followers can see it at the top of their Home Page. A person who does not follow you can access your Fleets by visiting your profile. If your DMs are open, anyone can reach to your fleets.
See the featured image to understand how it will look like. It looks exactly the same as what we see on Instagram. Here’s how the Fleet composer screen will look.
Stories feature was brought by Snapchat but Facebook brought it to masses by including it across Instagram, Facebook, and WhatsApp. YouTube also added the same kind of feature a few months back. Several tore apps like Spotify and Skype are also testing the same.
