How to mute or disable Twitter Fleet in feeds


Twitter recently rolled out their latest feature "⚡️Fleets⚡️".

Fleets allow sharing personal in-the-moment thoughts with your followers free of public reactions, the Fleets disappear after 24 hours (thinking about WhatsApp's disappearing messages ? 😎).

Fleet authors can see who viewed the Fleet, including accounts with protected Tweets, by clicking into their Fleets and tapping on the Seen By text at the bottom.

This is how a fleet looks, a circle on top of the screen. Thinking of Instagram or Facebook Stories this time ? 😎.
