The new feature was first introduced in Brazil, the report said. Unlike the other tweets, fleets cannot be retweeted and others an only respond to it by messaging directly.  Thus it prevents the circulation of tweets across the cyber world.
"People often tell us that they don't feel comfortable Tweeting because Tweets can be seen and replied to by anybody, feel permanent and performative (how many Likes & Retweets will this get!?)… We've been listening to this feedback and working to create new capabilities that address some of the anxieties that hold people back from talking on Twitter," product lead at Twitter, Kayvon Beykpour was quoted as saying in the report.
Users who have updated twitter with the new feature can find the feature at the top of the home screen of the app, the report said. The users can update the fleet by clicking on the small icon with the '+' sign.
