Twitter announced that it will discontinue its ‘Fleets’ feature that was the microblogging platform’s own version of 24-hour-long 'Instagram Stories' (though the inventor of the concept was Snapchat) for followers, on August 3. The Wednesday announcement implies that the company would end the feature that was unveiled only last year to compete with the Stories features available in Snapchat and Facebook Inc’s Instagram.

Twitter Fleets allows the users to post full-screen photos, videos, reactions or just text that ultimately disappears after 24 hours. Similar features were introduced by Snapchat and Facebook, but Fleets came several years later. Twitter’s vice president also said, “Fleets are mostly used by people who are already Tweeting to amplify their own Tweets and talk directly with others.”
Brown added, “We'll explore more ways to address what holds people back from participating on Twitter." The Verge stated in its report that Twitter announcing to discontinue the feature is not only an admission that the feature failed but revealed the company’s cluelessness about how to get people to tweet more. ,best-online-casino-for-blackjack
Further, Brown wrote in the blog post, “We’re evolving what Twitter is, and trying bigger, bolder things to serve the public conversation. A number of these updates, like Fleets, are speculative and won’t work out. We’ll be rigorous, evaluate what works, and know when to move on and focus elsewhere.”,free-dancing-drums-slot-machine-online
“If we're not evolving our approach and winding down features every once in a while – we're not taking big enough chances. We’ll continue to build new ways to participate in conversations, listening to feedback and changing direction when there may be a better way to serve people using Twitter,” he added.,my-lottery-login
