You may have to wait a few more days for Fleets. Twitter says it is delaying the rollout of its new Stories-like feature to address “performance and stability issues.”
Like any new feature on social media, Fleets is being viewed quite critically. Users are complaining that the feature is a clone of Instagram Stories, that it takes up too much space on the Twitter feed, and that it opens the door to new forms of harassment on the Twitter platform. With all these criticisms, Fleets has to make a good first impression, which is why Twitter wants to fix some of the kinks before continuing the rollout.
We are slowing down the Fleets rollout to fix some performance and stability issues. If you don’t already have the feature, you may not get it until a few days later.
We love that so many people use Fleets and want to make sure we give the best experience for everyone.

Twitter has not announced a timeline for the fleet rollout, although @TwitterSupport suggests the feature will make its way to remaining Twitter users in a few days. In the meantime, I think you have no choice but to use that Voice Tweets feature that you have been avoiding.
