Twitter started testing its Instagram Stories-like feature ‘Fleets' earlier this year. It has been testing it in select countries including India for some time. Twitter has now launched Fleets globally for all users.

Twitter Fleets like Instagram Stories last for 24 hours, and appear on top of the timeline. Fleets are displayed with the user's profile picture and Twitter's blue colour ring round it. The features around it are also quite the same. You can post text, photos and videos, and share tweets on Fleets, and see who viewed them.

Twitter lets you capture photos and videos from the Fleets camera, and share from your camera roll as well. You can also customise your Fleets with background and text colours. If you're seeing someone's Fleets you can react to it, and also reply to them. These replies will appear on Twitter's DM.Twitter plans to add stickers and live broadcasting on Fleets soon. 

So how do you Fleet?
