[Update: Now available in Italy] Twitter tests Instagram Stories-like features like ‘Fleets’ to delete tweets after 24 hours| Instant News

Update 5/21: Previously only available in Brazil, the new Fleet feature is now being launched Twitter users in Italy. According to Twitter, more people tweet after having access to the Fleet, so the company decided to expand it to more countries. You can check first see Fleet in depth here.

Twitter is now testing a new feature called “Armada”, which automatically deletes tweets after 24 hours. This announcement was made today by Kayvon Beykpour, Twitter Product Lead.

At present, there is no official way to delete old tweets after a certain time, so users who want this feature must rely on third-party tools. Starting today, Twitter will make “Fleet” available to a small number of users, so that they can share text, photos and videos that will be available on their profile in just 24 hours.

Beykpour said the idea came after several users shared that they felt intimidated about posting certain things because they had no control over the visibility of the content.

“Every day, people come to Twitter to see what happens. One of the unique things about Twitter is that “what happens” is encouraged by people who share their thoughts openly, via Tweets. But sharing your thoughts in public can be scary! “

This feature works in a similar way to Instagram Stories because content with a limited amount of time will be displayed in a circle at the top of the application, separately from the timeline. At first, it would only be possible to send such content via the official Twitter application for iOS and Android.

The fleet will be launched first for users in Brazil, and then will be released progressively in other regions. You can see the video below (in Portuguese) showing the features:
