Fleets, a feature on Twitter that allows users to post temporary content that disappears after 24-hours, is getting a new update that will allow users to add gifs, stickers and emoji, making them more fun and personalized. The feature is rolling out today on Twitter app for both iOS and Android users.
Twitter Fleets is quite new when compared to similar offerings from Snapchat and Instagram. As a result, Fleets is not quite as rich in features when compared to Snapchat and Instagram Stories, and often wasn’t compelling enough a feature for Twitter users to post more Fleets.
Your Fleets just got an upgrade.

The ability to add GIFs, stickers and Twemoji (which is their term for emoji from Twitter) should now entice more users to post Fleets.
To add them, simply click the 🙂 icon when creating a Fleet. A screen will show up containing all the Stickers and Twemoji that Twitter has to offer. At the top, users can also search for stickers in case they can’t find the right one when scrolling through the library.
