The new "Fleets" feature is reminiscent of Instagram and Facebook "stories" and Snapchat's snaps, which let users post short-lived photos and messages.
But some of you tell us that Tweeting is uncomfortable because it feels so public, so permanent, and like there's so much pressure to rack up Retweets and Likes.
Twitter's goal is to serve the public conversation - it's where you go to see what's happening and talk about it.
Kelley said warnings or labels, which Twitter has started applying to content such as manipulated media and misinformation about civic processes or COVID-19, could be applied to fleets.
"To help people feel more comfortable, we've been working on a lower pressure way for people to talk about what's happening".

That thing you didn't Tweet but wanted to but didn't but got so close but then were like nah.
San Francisco-based Twitter first tested what it calls an "ephemeral format" in Brazil, Italy, India, and South Korea. For all we know Fleets could be a major part of the Twitter experience in the future. Twitter hopes that this will make users more comfortable sharing their "casual thoughts, opinions and feelings".
Users will see Fleets at the top of their timeline, and anyone who can view your full profile will be able to see your Fleets, too. People can respond to them, but the replies show up as direct messages to the original tweeter, not as a public response, turning any back-and-forth into a private conversation instead of a public discussion.
Followers can reply to Fleets by sending a private Direct Messages, but only if they follow each other or the account holder has their Direct Messages set to open.
To watch the Fleet posted by others, you will have to swipe upwards however, to see the next person's fleet, you will have to swipe horizontally.
