Twitter’s new transient tweets, known as fleets, should keep going for just 24 hours. Yet, a bug is making fleets not absolutely vanish, staying available well past their expiration dates. First revealed by TechCrunch, the bug permits fleets to be seen and downloaded by different clients, however without advising the fleet’s creator.

“We’re aware of a bug accessible through a technical workaround where some Fleets media URLs may be accessible after 24 hours,” a Twitter spokesperson said in an email to The Verge. “We are working on a fix that should be rolled out shortly.”

The “workaround” referred to seems, by all accounts, to be an engineer application that could scratch fleets from public accounts through Twitter’s API. The Twitter API doesn’t return URLs for fleets that are older than 24 hours, as per the organization, and once the fix is turned out, regardless of whether somebody has a URL for active fleet, it won’t work after the termination point.

And keeping in mind that fleets are just obvious on clients’ timetables for 24 hours, Twitter stores fleets on its back end for as long as 30 days, longer for fleets that disregard its standards and may require implementation activity, the organization says. During that 30-day time frame, a fleet is accessible in a client’s Twitter Data downloads insofar as Twitter is holding a duplicate. The “seen by” activity is normally just accessible when somebody sees a fleet through the Twitter application.

Twitter is somewhat late to the vanishing content gathering—fleets are basically its variant of Instagram or Snapchat stories, They permit versatile Twitter clients to quickly share text, recordings, pictures, or different tweets. They’re not intended to be retweetable and you can’t straightforwardly “like” a fleet, however people can answer to one by tapping on it, which sends an immediate message to the fleet’s maker.
