You can soon tweet, upload pictures and videos and that conveniently disappear after 24 hours as Twitter will begin testing out a new feature called “fleets.”
It’s interesting to think about how people will begin to use this new Twitter feature even if this is something we are all familiar with as other social media platforms have already adopted this.
According to a report, a Twitter group product manager, Mo Aladham said this about the new feature:
“Twitter is for having conversations about what you care about. But, some of you tell us that you’re uncomfortable to tweet because tweets are public, feel permanent, and have public counts (retweets and likes). We want to make it possible for you to have conversations in new ways with less pressure and more control, beyond tweets and direct messages. That’s why starting today in Brazil, we’re testing fleets, a new way to start conversations from your fleeting thoughts.”
You’re probably wondering how you’re going to incorporate these “fleets” in your daily tweets. Apparently, you can’t like or retweet a fleet. You can respond to fleets with a reaction emoji, that will open up a DM with who you’re speaking to!
This is not the only new feature that will be implemented. Not too long ago we reported that the social media giant will also launch “safe DMs” that will censor unwarranted pics in your DMs without having to see something you want to unsee!
