Fleets, Twitters version of stories, has reached a third country India. This comes after the debut in Brazil and subsequent launch in Italy last month. The feature is already live and you can give it a try.
Note that fleets live in a separate timeline and are short-lived (they disappear automatically after 24 hours). Basically, this is Twitters take on Snapchats Stories (a feature that was borrowed by Instagram, WhatsApp, even YouTube and Skype, among others).
Some typical Twitter restrictions apply, including the 280 character limit. But these are different from classic tweets, you cant retweet or like a fleet, for example. You can react with emojis or reply with DMs, though.
Its not clear which country will be next to get fleet or when Twitter will make the feature available globally.
