Twitter tests its version of disappearing stories


SAN FRANCISCO — Twitter Inc. is testing a way for users to post photos and videos that disappear after 24 hours — similar to Stories products offered on rival social networks — to encourage people to share more often on its service.

The San Francisco-based company calls these disappearing posts Fleets — short for fleeting tweets — and wants the tool to ease the pressure of online sharing. Similar to tweets, Fleets are text-first but videos, GIFs and photos can be added.
