Twitter has announced that its Stories-like Fleets is going to be brought over to Japan.
What is Fleets? According to Gadgetsnow.com:
“It is a new feature similar to Instagram Stories where tweets automatically disappear after 24 hours. There will be no Likes, Retweets, or public replies to these tweets. The new feature, according to the company, is to empower more people to express their thoughts freely as the Fleets posted can only be viewed in closed space or more precisely people who follow you just like on Instagram.”
Who knows how popular this feature will be when it fully releases, and it isn’t exactly original at this point with every other social platform doing the same thing. But because younger audiences respond will with content that Stories like content, then perhaps this is a good way to go.
