Twitter developers, eight months after the release of Fleets, announced the closure of this feature.
Twitter Fleets is analogous to Instagram Stories. That is, short videos that were displayed at the top of the social network. Due to low demand, the company decided to remove them. Fleets will be disabled for all users on August 3rd. Instead, they will display Spaces audio rooms, which the company borrowed from Clubhouse.
we're removing Fleets on August 3, working on some new stuff
we're sorry or you're welcome

By the way, after the removal of Fleets, Twitter plans to keep some editing tools. For example, the ability to format text, as well as add stickers and GIF animations to images.
