Twitter's Fleets feature now supports both GIFs and stickers for the first time, the company announced yesterday.
The feature, which will immediately seem familiar to users of Instagram and Snapchat, allows people to add animations and more to their Fleets to add information, emotion, or just to make them look snazzy.
Fleets are very similar to Instagram Stories and can be found at the top of the Twitter app on your iPhone. Adding a GIF or sticker is as simple as composing a new Fleet and then tapping the emoji icon. Do that, and you can even search for a suitable GIF with results provided by Tenor and Giphy.
Fleets is another feature that is very unlikely to come to third-party apps like Tweetbot and Aviary, making the official Twitter app the place to be if you're keen to make sure you're getting as full of a Twitter experience as possible.
Looking to make sure your Fleet game is on point? It's a good idea to bag one of the best iPhones for photographers – you'll benefit from those amazing cameras!
