Few hours after Twitter announced the testing its own version of Stories, called Fleets, where you can upload photos and videos that disappear after 24 hours, users have started criticizing the latest update.
On Wednesday evening, #RIPTwitter was seriously trending the US . Nevertheless, the feature rolled out the same day and is currently only available in Brazil.
Unlike normal tweets, Fleets do not receive retweets, likes or public replies. Users can only react or respond to them with direct messages, just like Instagram’s Stories feature.
Fleets will not appear on people’s Twitter timelines like regular tweets. Instead, they can be viewed by tapping on someone’s avatar.
