Twitter starts testing ‘co-fleets’ in Brazil
Twitter has started testing ‘co-fleets’ for its Fleets feature.
Twitter started testing Fleets in India last month. This Instagram Stories-like feature is still limited and hasn't been officially launched yet. Twitter has now started testing “co-fleets” that essentially lets you and another user share Fleets together.
This was first spotted by Amrith Shanbhag who posted a screenshot of co-fleets. Twitter Fleets appear on top of the app along with the user's profile picture. For co-fleets, both the users profile pictures will appear together along with their conversation.

Twitter has started testing co-fleets in Brazil where it first started testing Fleets.
“We are testing something new for some people using Fleets in Brazil so they can Fleet with another account and everyone can see their conversation for 24 hours. We are trying this to understand how people might use this new way of having conversations in Fleets, as part of our bigger efforts to better serve the public conversation and encourage people to share fleeting thoughts,” Twitter told Hindustan Times.
To use co-fleet you'll need to tag another Twitter user who will appear in the Fleet. The tagged person's reply will also show up in the co-fleet. It's like a conversation between you and that person which will be visible in Fleets.

Twitter is also working on revamping the UI of Fleets, as spotted by Jane Manchun Wong. These features include text colours, and displaying the username below the Fleets icon. The UI change also makes it look quite like the Instagram Stories interface as well. All these features are in testing and there's no word when Twitter will make them available to more users.
