Twitter's new fleet is designed to disappear in 24 hours, but users have discovered a bug that allows others to see past intervals of expiration dates. This issue seems to be linked to a developer app that can access Twitter's back-end system, allowing anyone to clear tweets from public accounts via a direct URL link.

The Daily Mail.com has approached Twitter and is waiting for a response.

Twitter launched Fleets last week, allowing users to make tweets disappear within 24 hours.

However, the company has hit some bumps in the road from the rollout – a day after the announcement the rollout had to be slowed down to fix performance and stability issues.

Now, the feature seems useless.

According to Tech CrunchThe error was detected using an app designed to communicate with Twitter’s back-end system using Twitter’s Developer API.

When accessing the back-end, a user could see a list of navies, each with its own direct URL.

Twitter spokesman Tech Crunch said they were working to fix the flaw.

The company shared in an email that ‘after 24 hours we were aware of a bug that could be accessed by a technical package that could access some naval media URLs’.

‘We are working on a solution that needs to be fixed soon.’

Once fixed, according to Twitter, the Navy will have the designated expiration date.

However, the company stated that it did not remove these posts from its servers for up to 30 days and that the content would last longer if it violated its rules.

Navy Snapshot, Instagram Stories and WhatsApp’s new ‘Fading News’ give users the option to create automatically disappearing posts later.

These tweets are prevented from being retweeted or received a public response – the only way to communicate via direct messages.

Followers can respond to navies by sending a private direct message, but only if they follow each other or the account holder is set to open their direct messages.

The company said the fleets are designed to help users feel more comfortable participating in the platform in a ‘low pressure way’ without having to worry about retweets and options.
