Twitter expands its experimental “Stories” to India

Fleets

The well-known Stories, which were born within Snapchat, are here to stay and spread through many other social platforms, as we have been seeing during the last years, and that on Twitter will not be the exception, despite the fact that there are already those who see in this integration the loss of the essential that made it different.

But despite this, Twitter continues with the Fleets, which is what they call their version of the Stories, currently in an experimental phase.

The arrival in the Brazilian and Italian markets is now added to its arrival in India, whose users will get the experimental function in the coming days through the new update, which will reach everyone through the application for Android and iOS.

Twitter encourages users to contribute their options and comments through the #FleetsFeedback hashtag, allowing you to learn the best possible way you will have to implement your version of Stories within the platform, as long as the experiment turns out to be successful.

For Twitter, India is an emerging and rapidly growing market for it worldwide, in which it has reached about 55 million users last April, according to the analysis firm App Annie, They are still well below the users that both Facebook and Google have.

And while India is the second most important Internet market in the world, so far, Twitter has hardly taken any initiatives in this market, although now it is reversing its trend and will have India in greater consideration.

Manish Maheshwari, Managing Director of Twitter India, said in a statement:

Starting with the trial in India, we will learn how adding a new conversation mode changes the way Indians engage on Twitter. It will also be interesting to see if it further amplifies the diversity of use by allowing people to share what they think in a light and joyful way.

All that remains is to wait for further experimentation with the Fleets, although now, as on previous occasions, there are users wishing that the new function did not finally settle.
