Twitter Testing its Answer to Stories
Twitter is testing a major new feature called "Fleets". Similar to Snapchat, or Stories in Instagram and Facebook, Fleets are automatically deleted after 24 hours. Also, Fleets are only visible to followers; they can't be shared directly with the public. For now, Twitter is only making the feature available in Brazil, as a public trial of the concept.
