Twitter brings the Fleets. The ephemeral contents have ended up reaching practically every corner of the Internet. They started in Snapchat and their use has been gradually imposed, bringing the format ‘stories’ to many apps and services. They are on Instagram, on Facebook, on Telegram, on WhatsApp and, yes, they have also arrived to Twitter.

Twitter has given them a name that is quite easy to remember, Fleets, and they are contents that disappear within 24 hours of their publication. We are not talking about normal tweets but these are posts designed to take advantage of the vertical screen of the cell phone with effects, gifs and other options available.
The Fleets will automatically disappear 24 hours after they have been created and shared. Twitter in fact imitates the interface format of other known apps and places the Fleets at the top, so we will see them as soon as we open the app, above the feed of normal tweets.
The Fleets will not only be there to be consumed but we will also be able to interact with them on Twitter. The answers to them will be sent to the users as direct messages, something that will also happen with the reactions to them because yes, we will have emojis to send quick reactions. In addition, logically, Twitter will make it easier for your tweets to be shared directly as a Fleet like in the other apps.
Twitter brings the Fleets but this is not the only thing. Voice messaging will also arrive and we will be able to create groups in which we can communicate only through voice messages. The Fleets will arrive in the next few days to both iOS and Android, so it is just a matter of time.
