Twitter introduces Fleets, basically stories…

As if we didn’t have enough of people posting hella stories on Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, Snapchat, pretty much everywhere, we now have Fleets on Twitter.

The social media platform announce this addition today in one tweet:

Then added this little ‘explanatory’ video:

However, we must consider that there are people that do not use all the other social platforms that I mentioned above so these might be the only live story videos or whatever that they might ever get to see.

“Fleets are for sharing momentary thoughts – they help start conversations and only stick around for 24 hours.” – Twitter.

But, was this really necessary, Jack?!

“You can Fleet text, reactions to Tweets, photos or videos and customize your Fleets with various background and text options. To share a Tweet in a Fleet tap the “Share” icon at the bottom of the Tweet and then tap, “Share in Fleet.” Then, add what you think about it with some text or emojis. Soon, stickers and live broadcasting will be available in Fleets.” – Twitter.

And still no edit button. Awesome work, Twitter.

The most notable change that Twitter made to its platform was in June 2020 with the addition of audio tweets, where users could send a tweet in the form of a voice recording and tweet it to their followers. They shared that news here.
