Twitter is yeeting Fleets, its Tales-like ephemeral posts, on August third, which means that relying on if you learn this, you will have mere hours to unleash that fleet you’ve been excited about for months unto the world.
And I ask — no, beg: please, submit the fleets. I want some leisure to kick off my month.
Look, I do know that there are already quite a lot of completely different locations the place you possibly can share expiring posts. Snapchat. Instagram. Facebook. Even LinkedIn. And that vast variety of decisions might be a part of why Fleets by no means actually took off. Why share expiring posts on Twitter when many different apps have supplied higher instruments to take action for years? Even on my iPhone 12 Mini, my Fleets bar was not often crammed up.
However let’s change that only for someday to ship Fleets out in a blaze of glory. I’ve contributed to the trigger, posting my closing (and first ever) fleet. It’s a foul fleet, so please don’t go away me on an island — assist me out by posting higher fleets.
Disappointingly, that annoying bar on the high of the Twitter app gained’t be disappearing completely as soon as Fleets go to the nice social media graveyard. As a substitute, it can present lively Areas, its social audio rooms (one other characteristic that’s showing in some form or type in a zillion other apps — including LinkedIn). However till Areas take over, let’s lastly replenish that Fleets bar with the very best (or cringiest) stuff that you just’ve obtained.
