It has been announced by the social media giant, Twitter that the company is testing ephemeral tweets that will be disappeared after the 24 hours of the published time.
Kayvon Beykpour, the company’s head of the product announced through a series of tweets that the social networking service has initially introduced the new feature, ‘Fleets’ in Brazil.
“We’ve been listening to this feedback and working to create new capabilities that address some of the anxieties that hold people back from talking on Twitter. Today, in Brazil only, we’re starting a test (on Android and iOS) for one of those new capabilities. It’s called Fleets,” Beykpour said in a series of tweets.
He further said that the ‘Fleets’ are the ways of sharing fleeting thoughts. As per the statement, unlike Tweets, Fleets will disappear after 24 hours and don’t get Retweets, Likes, or public replies and Twitter users can only react to your Fleets with the DMs (Direct Messages).
He further maintained that instead of showing up in the timelines of the users, Fleets are viewed by tapping on your avatar.
