Twitter started rolling out its new Fleets feature globally today, after testing the feature in several countries in recent months. Fleets are like Tweets, but fleeting, because they are only visible for 24 hours. They appear to followers at the top of their home timeline. In this sense and more, they are very similar to the Stories feature of Instagram and other social media services. Twitter says the ephemeral nature of Fleets help "people feel more comfortable sharing personal and casual thoughts, opinions, and feelings". Fleets can be simple text, photos, videos, or reactions to Tweets. Like Stories, there are "various background and text options". The feature is rolling out to the Twitter app for iOS and Android over the next few days.
