Twitter launches “Fleets” feature yesterday, posts themselves disappear within 24 hours
On Tuesday, the microblogging site Twitter launched the Global Fleet feature. In this case, the Tweet will automatically disappear after 24 hours. Like Snapchat and Instagram, it is a photo-sharing app. These self-destructive tweets, photos, and videos are referred to collectively as fleets.
It will appear at the top of the fleet user’s schedule. It will be available in the sender’s profile. Prior to releasing this feature, the company tested in India, Brazil, South Korea, and Italy.
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!
Rolling out to everyone starting today. pic.twitter.com/auQAHXZMfH

Design director Joshua Harris and product director Sam Havenson wrote in a blog post-making tweets more public and permanent was an unpleasant task for some, except for the pressure to like and retweet. .. However, as tweets disappear day by day, the fleet is expected to help people express their opinions and feelings.
Other users cannot retweet photos or videos shared via the fleet feature. Also, users do not get the option to like or comment. However, users can send feedback about shared photos and videos by sending a message.
