Like Facebook, Instagram and YouTube, Twitter he has implemented his own interpretation of the “stories.” Known as ‘fleets’, these are tweets that will be deleted 24 hours after the user publishes them, although they will have certain restrictions compared to normal tweets.

Fleets may not have Retweets, likes or be answered publicly. Instead, the reactions to these will go directly to the private messages of each user.

Kayvon Beykpour, responsible for the division of Twitter Product, explained that, while it is true that the function shares certain similarities with Instagram Stories, “there are some intentional differences so that the experience focuses more on sharing and seeing people’s thoughts.” For now, fleets can also include GIFs, videos or photos, in addition to being able to view them from our profile, as they will appear at the top of the screen.

The fleets, unlike the Stories from the other social networks, are based – for the moment, at least – mainly on the text, but also GIFs, videos or photos can be included and will appear at the top of the application’s home page. In addition, it will be possible to see them also from the profile of each person.
