Fleets, Twitter’s new inclusion that is a huge adaptation from Snapchat Stories will not be available for some users for a few more days. The social media company has revealed that it is slowing down the rollout of Fleets to handle a number of technical issues.


In a tweet, Twitter disclosed that it’s fixing some performance and stability problems with the new feature. For the people who are yet to receive the new feature, this means they will have to wait a few more days; before they can become a part of those sharing ephemeral content using the new format.


Shortly after the release of Fleets, Twitter confirmed to that it was experiencing a problem for many users. Some have complained that it was lagging; and often times too causing the Twitter app to crash.
