Twitter is starting to implement a new feature called “Fleets”. This is very similar to Instagram Stories, as it erases tweets after 24 hours.
After being only available in Brazil, the new feature is also already being tested by users in Italy. This expansion comes after the social network noticed a large flow of users trying out the novelty.
How Fleets works:
With this feature, users can share text, photos or videos as they normally do. The big difference is that after 24 hours, they disappear from your profile.
There’s now more to the conversation behind the Retweet count. On iOS, tapping into any Tweet, then tapping “Retweets” will show you the Retweets with comments. https://t.co/d18jK4FMvK

How the idea came about:
According to Kayvon Beykpour, Twitter product leader, the idea comes after several complaints from users. This is because it was said that they did not have much control over the visibility of their content.
As in Instagram, the new feature will show you the content individually in circles at the top of the application. As you can see in the video above, it is an interface that is very familiar.
This is a feature that, as in other social networks, will certainly succeed. The big advantage will certainly be to reduce spam on your timeline, since you will make certain tweets that will be deleted after a day.
