Disappearing Tweets? Twitter now has a feature for that

SAN FRANCISCO — First Snapchat did it. Then Instagram and Facebook jumped in. Now Twitter is joining in, too.

On Tuesday, Twitter said it would introduce a feature called Fleets, allowing users to post ephemeral photos or text that will automatically disappear after 24 hours. Fleets, a name that refers to the “fleeting” nature of a thought or expression, will roll out to all iPhone and Android users globally over the coming days, the company said.

Twitter said its main “global town square” service, which people such as President Donald Trump use to broadcast their thoughts to followers, remained its marquee product. But the company said it recognized that many users simply lurked on the platform and rarely posted. Fleets, it said, could make it easier for people to communicate without worrying about wider scrutiny of their posts.

Twitter Adds Disappearing Post Feature

Twitter  (TWTR) – Get Report has jumped on the disappearing post train, unveiling a Snapchat-like feature that allows users to share posts that disappear within 24 hours. 

Twitter Fleets is designed to help users feel more comfortable participating on the platform in a “lower pressure way” Twitter said in its announcement. 

Fleets is different from regular Twitter posts that remain on the users feed until they are deleted. The new feature is available globally now after Twitter first tested it in places such as Brazil and India.

While rival social media company Snap  (SNAP) – Get Report innovated the disappearing post feature years ago with its Stories, Facebook  (FB) – Get Report then released its own version of the technology on its Instagram platform before also porting it over to its flagship website. 

Twitter shares were up 0.2% to $42.81 on Tuesday morning.

Now, any mobile Twitter user, regardless of where they live or what platform they’re on, will have access to the disappearing messaging feature, which will sit right at the top of the timeline in a row of Stories-like bubbles. Twitter hopes the new feature will help reduce the pressure around tweeting by letting users express more casual thoughts and feelings while also concerning themselves less with saying something profound or racking up likes and retweets. Fleets starts rolling out today on Android and iOS and should be available for everyone in the coming days, the company says.
