Twitter has started testing a new feature in its official app that allows users to post stories Although called temporary tweets like the idea of stories
they are deleted 24 hours after they are published and friends can interact with them with emojis, and it calls the fleet.
The temporary tweets will not appear on the home page as the rest of the tweets
but there will be circular icons, as is known in almost all applications
by clicking on the icon of any friend who shows you his temporary tweets.
It’s like Instagram, but he’s here on tweets
Instead of posting tweets that everyone can see and have numerical indicators of the number of Twitter retweets and likes,
now with fleets
- you will be able to express yourself more and you realize that
- they will be deleted automatically one day after they are published
- The fleet or the published story can be answered with a special message
- or set of feelings and ready-made reactions in the form of emojis
New Twitter stories supports up to 280 characters
place a still or animated picture, video or text tweet.
You can neither retweet nor like a story your friend has posted to your audience.
This feature is now being tested inside the company and in Brazil for a certain number of users,
and may later accommodate more users around the world before it is officially approved.
Some aspects of the new features look familiar
Just like the Instagram or Facebook story
the fleet [yes, the fleet] will be displayed in a carousel at the top of the home timeline
and will disappear after 24 hours. The fleet will also have a limit of 280 characters
[such as regular tweets] and can choose to add pictures
videos or GIFs, but users will not be able to reshare
Although like or publicly reply If the DM is already open, people can reply to the fleet with a direct message.
Based on testing in Brazil, Twitter said it might introduce features to other countries.
“People have told us in early research that because the fleet has disappeared, they feel more willing to share everyday casual thoughts,” Mo Aladham,
Group product manager at Twitter Brasil
wrote in the announcement
The English translation of the post was originally Portuguese
and was originally provided by Twitter. “We want people
in conclusion who are not used to Tweeting to use Fleets to share their thoughts.”
