Twitter’s Fleets Are Now Available In India
This feature has been gradually introduced all around the world
Twitter has just introduced a new feature called Fleets in India. The feature is Twitter’s answer to Snapchat and Instagram’s Stories feature. This feature has been gradually introduced all around the world. It was initially introduced in Brazil. Next, it made its way to Italy last month.
In a press statement, a Twitter spokesperson said about Fleets, “We learned from research that people don’t Tweet because Tweets are public, feel permanent, and display the number of Retweets and Likes. We hope Fleets will empower many more people to express themselves more freely.”
“India is important for Twitter since it is one of our largest and fastest-growing audience markets globally,” Twitter’s India managing director Manish Maheshwari said in a statement. “We are excited to bring the Fleets experiment to India and make it one of the first three countries in the world to experience this new product.”
“From the test in India, we’ll learn how adding a new mode of conversation changes the way Indians engage on Twitter. It’ll also be interesting to see if it further amplifies the diversity of usage by allowing people to share what they’re thinking in a way that is light-touch and light-hearted.”
However, it is not clear when Twitter will introduce Fleets a worldwide release. Meanwhile, Fleets will finally offer disappearing posts on the platform which has been unavailable so far. The feature will be initially introduced to Twitter’s Android and iOS apps. India is the third market where Twitter is rolling out Fleets, after Brazil and Italy.
