Twitter Might Be Launching a New "Stories" Feature

“Fleets” may be coming sooner than you think.

By now, the “Stories” feature has become a key element to some of our favorite social media platforms, including both Instagram and Facebook. Originally created by Snapchat in 2013, the feature has been expanded and adapted, and now it looks like Twitter is the latest platform to jump on the trend.

The new function is dubbed  “Fleets” – a combination of “fleeting” and “Tweets” – and is currently being tested in Brazil. The feature follows a similar format to other platforms, allowing users to post photos, videos, texts and GIFs that will be public for 24 hours, before disappearing. The “Fleets” can’t be liked or re-shared, with Twitter saying “People have told us in early research that because Fleets disappear, they feel more willing to share casual, everyday thoughts.” “We hope that people who don’t usually feel comfortable Tweeting use Fleets to share musings about what’s on their mind,” added Twitter in a blog post.

It remains to see when the feature will be rolled out internationally, but watch this space as any updates surface. What are your thoughts on “Fleets?” Will you be using it? Let us know in the comments below.
