Twitter Launches Disappearing “Fleets” And Starts Testing Audio Chat Rooms – Review Geek

We knew it was coming, but we didn̵

7;t know it was going to happen so soon. Twitter unleashes Fleets, an ill-named take on Instagram or Snapchat Stories. The idea should feel familiar: Fleets self-destruct after 24 hours and top your Twitter feed, just like Stories. And if that’s not weird enough, Twitter is also testing an audio chatroom feature that’s comparable to Clubhouse or Discord.

Twitter began testing Fleets in March 2020. The feature, which I safely call a Stories clone, should help users have fun on Twitter without posting permanent, public messages. You cannot retweet or comment on Fleets, although you can respond to them with emojis or a quick DM.

Just like Instagram or Snapchat Stories, Fleets makes it easy to edit photos or videos with text and emoji. The built-in editor is pretty simple, but it could make Fleets the go-to method for sharing photos and videos on Twitter.

Twitter also says it is testing audio chat rooms where people with friends and strangers can chew the fat. Audio chat rooms, which are similar to Clubhouse or Discord voice chats, seem like a strange direction for the text-based Twitter platform. Public chat rooms are a lot harder to moderate than Tweets, and to be fair, Twitter users don’t seem very interested in the new Voice Tweets feature that just launched two months ago.

Fleets is now rolling out to all Twitter users, but the feature is only available on mobile devices. Twitter has not announced a release for its audio chat rooms feature, but the company may be testing audio chat rooms for select users in the near future.
