Launched a company Twitter, on Wednesday, has a feature (temporary tweets) for users around the world, but its popularity has led to problems that many users have complained about.
Temporary Tweets – which Twitter calls Fleets, mean the ephemeral thing – appear at the top of the Twitter app, allowing users to post tweets that disappear after 24 hours of posting them, as well as see temporary tweets posted by other users.
But it appears that user demand, and their curiosity about the new addition, is affecting the performance of the feature, so many Twitter users have reported that Fleets is lagging and running slowly. Some say: Turning the feature on led to the Twitter app itself being stopped working.
Twitter acknowledged to TechCrunch, a technical website, that it was aware of the problem affecting some users, and said: It is working to solve the problem.
If you are among those affected, you will notice that when you click or swipe to scroll through temporary tweets, the screen will freeze temporarily or move very slowly. This may make your phone appear to be experiencing problems, but the problem is only with the Twitter app.
It is believed that the popularity of the temporary Tweet feature may be an early indication of its success.
For its part, Twitter said at Tweet: “We are working to slow the release of temporary Tweets to fix some performance and stability issues. If you don’t have the feature yet, you might not get it for a few more days. ” She added, “We love that Uses A lot of people have temporary tweets, and we want to make sure we provide the best experience for everyone. ”
