Twitter group product manager Mo. launching this service. Al Adam said, “Twitter is where people go to pick up and talk. We want people to interact in different ways on Twitter with less pressure and more control. So we are testing a new way of sharing their Fleeting ideas. Since the trial of Fleets in Brazil, Twitter has noticed that people are now more comfortable sharing their ideas. People who don’t usually tweet are also starting the dialogue and doing both Fleets and Tweets. When people send a Fleet, they often rapidly share many ideas. “

We are excited to bring the use of Fleets to India and make it one of the first three countries in the world to experience this new product. From testing in India, we will learn that adding a new way of communication changes the way Indians connect on Twitter. It will also be interesting to see if it can become of many use by allowing people to share whatever is going on in their minds in a light-hearted way. ”
