There’s a brand new way to converse on Twitter. And it’s perfect for those who are overwhelmed by the thought of sharing permanent thoughts on Twitter for anyone to see, whenever they want.
That thing you didn’t Tweet but wanted to but didn’t but got so close but then were like nah.
We have a place for that now—Fleets!

To use Fleets, type something, or share a video or a photo, just like you would for a regular Tweet. But with Fleets, you don’t have to feel any pressure before it goes live. That’s because the content is only live for 24 hours before it disappears.
You can think of Fleets as similar to Instagram Stories or Facebook Stories or Snaps.
Basically, Fleets are ideal for passing thoughts. Because they disappear after 24 hours, the shy Twitter user can feel more comfortable about being a little more vocal on the platform.
