Twitter’s attempt to include the famous Instagram Stories on its platform has not had the expected return. Therefore, just nine months after its release, Fleets will no longer exist on the platform on the 3rd of August.
The feature, despite being widely used on other networks, has not gained ground on Twitter. The chain’s head of consumer products, Kayvon Beykpour, told TechCrunch that the company would develop other products, but did not explain whether publications that disappear after a while will be in any of them.

The Spaces feature, created to compete with the Clubhouse, is still available on the app’s home page. The Fleets’ technology base, which occupied the app’s entire screen, should be maintained as an advertising resource.
For experts, turning off Fleets shows Twitter’s search to make your product accessible in a more conventional way to a larger group of users, as well as trying to increase user engagement.
