Twitter Said Fleets Were Going Away, So Everybody Posted Their Nudes

If you haven’t been on Twitter for the past two days, go RIGHT NOW. RUN. There are nudes EVERYWHERE.

In case you missed the announcement, in mid-July, Twitter announced it was getting rid of Fleets, its version of stories. Basically, Fleets are content that will disappear after 24 hours. It’s a successful model for Snapchat, Instagram, even Facebook, but on Twitter, Fleets just never took off. So, Twitter announced that Fleets would no longer be available starting August 3.

Cut to August 2. With only 24 hours left to use the feature, users decided to take full advantage of it in the most obvious way: by posting their nudes. And gays were, of course, totally on board.

Now, I’m not gonna show you anybody’s nudes — you can go see those for yourself. But I can show you the best reactions:

And yeah, if we’re all being so sex positive, let’s keep that energy for sex workers!

But here’s the kicker: it’s August 3, and Fleets are still here. Meaning all those “fleeting” nudes are still here too. Is Twitter just late in removing the feature? Did yesterday’s spike in engagement make them change their mind? Either way, chaos has ensued.

So what are you waiting for? Go be horny on main! Or at least, you know, in the Fleets, before they really are gone forever.
