Following Instagram, Facebook, and Snapchat, Twitter introduced Twitter Fleets which is quite similar to stories we put on those social accounts. With Twitter Fleets, you can share any photo, video, message, or anything from your Twitter handle. The Fleets will remain active for 24 hours, and you can decide whether to share with everyone or only with your followers. In addition, no one can interact with the Fleets like Retweeting, Likes, Replies, and Comment, but only see Fleets.
While if you’re not into Twitter Fleets, or annoyed by a person uploading Fleets, Twitter lets you mute the fleets from that particular account. People are really loving this update, but for the users who don’t want to clutter up their profile, mute the fleets on Twitter.
