[ I'd drafted the reaction below, but I prefer Prof. Klerphell's.]

> Fleets: a new way to join the conversation
> .,.. Tweeting is uncomfortable because it feels so public, so permanent, and like there's so much pressure to rack up Retweets and Likes. That’s why, unfortunately, there are so many 🔥 Tweets left in drafts!

Alternatively, people might be discovering that there's a huge amount of
vacuous dross in Tweets, and that adding more of it could be a liability
and even an embarrassment.

> Fleets are for sharing momentary thoughts – they help start conversations and only stick around for 24 hours.

Oh good:  even more, even more vacuous commentary ...

The sceptic in me also wonders what "stick around" means.
Maybe 'remain available to all but our strategic partners'?
