First, there was Snapchat, then Instagram Stories, then Facebook stories… now we have another temporary option – Fleets.

Twitter announced this new option, with temporary tweets that only last for 24 hours.

It sounds fake, but it’s absolutely real.

Twitter is also going to be working on “audio spaces” – and will apparently be trialling it for women and others from marginalised communities first.

People have already pointed out concerns.


It turns out that ‘fleets’ is also a well known personal hygiene brand in the US…


Will you be using them or think it’s just another passing fad?
