One of the popular social networking platforms, Twitter is testing a new feature called Fleets! This feature is similar to the Facebook story or WhatsApp status.
Twitter, is one of the best platforms to blow out your thoughts publicly. With this new feature Fleets, twitter does not want to stay behind with the trends.
Twitter is one of the last major social platforms to test out a Stories format. First popularized by Snapchat, you can now find a version of Stories across Instagram, Facebook, WhatsApp, YouTube, and others.
Twitter Fleets is currently launched only for mobile devices but it is expected that Twitter will soon launch Fleets option for desktop users.

India, the world’s second-largest internet market, is a key overseas nation for several American technology companies. Twitter had about 55 million active users in India in the month of April, according to mobile insight firm App Annie and shared by an industry executive.
This is the first time in several years that Twitter is timely bringing a feature to India — or doing anything noteworthy in this Asian market, where its platform has been scrutinized for not taking swift action on the spread of misinformation and abusive messages.
How to use Twitter Fleets
Users in India can update and view Twitter Fleets only via the app but not the Web client. If you have access to Fleets, you can find the feature at the top of the home screen of the app. To update a Fleet, click on the small icon with the ‘+’ sign.
You can add texts, photos, or gif to “share a fleeting thought.” Similar to Instagram and Snapchat ‘Stories’, Fleets will disappear after 24 hours.
