Share your moment of the day on Twitter’s new disappearing tweets tool - Fleets - and after 24 hours, the post will vanish from the platform

How to use Twitter Fleets

Hey Guys! The much-awaited Twitter’s tweets disappearing feature ‘Fleets’ has been rolled out globally for all its users. The feature will allow you to post ephemeral tweets (dubbed as Fleets) that will live only for 24 hours ⏱️ & then disappear from view after a day. Hence, you can now freely share your personal and casual thoughts, opinions, and feelings on Twitter just like on other social media platforms.

Just like Instagram Stories Map 🗺️, Pinterest Story Pins 📌 , and Snapchat’s snaps, you can now post short-lived photos and messages on Twitter also through its Fleets feature.  These features are trending nowadays among those social media users who have the desire to share their feelings in ephemeral format.
