Twitter has introduced a new feature called ‘Navy’ worldwide: tweets that disappear after 24 hours, similar to the feature of stories on Snapshot and Instagram.
Twitter has previously announced plans for these navy tweets, known as “navies”, and Tested the feature in Brazil, Italy, India and South Korea.
“Some of you tell us that tweeting is embarrassing because it’s very public, permanent, and there’s a lot of pressure to retweet and elevate options,” wrote Joshua Harris, Twitter’s design director, and Sam Havenson, product manager of the blog.
“After a day they disappear from view, making it more convenient for people to share personal and ordinary thoughts, ideas and feelings.
Some Twitter users who tested the tool said it created worrying opportunities for online harassment, such as allowing unwanted live messages. This allowed the Navy teachers to identify the individuals who were detained. He said Twitter was listening to feedback and resolving similar security concerns.
Navy includes text, photos and videos. They are available on Twitter at the top of users’ home timelines and on the sender’s profile.
Twitter and other social media companies are pushing for better police abuse and viral misinformation. Twitter spokeswoman Liz Kelly said the Navy is subject to the same rules as tweets.
Kelly’s warnings or labels – which began to apply to Twitter for contents such as the handled media and civil proceedings or misinformation about Govt-19 – could be used by the Navy.
Twitter has confirmed that it works on a live audio feature called Space, which is intended to be tested soon. This feature allows users to speak in public group conversations. It is similar to Clubhouse, a community platform that uses voice chat rooms.
“Considering all the potential for abuse in audio breaks, we’re going to make it available first to women and historically marginalized communities,” Kelly said.
Twitter earlier this year introduced a feature for users to tweet recorded voice notes.
