Twitter to discontinue Fleets feature from Aug 3

The microblogging platform had begun to test its voice tweets feature in summer last year. Twitter in September last year outlined its plans to improve accessibility on the platform. This included automatic transcription features for audio and video on the platform.

“We’re rolling out voice Tweets to more of you on iOS so we can keep learning about how people use audio. Since introducing the feature in June, we've taken your feedback seriously and are working to have transcription available to make voice Tweets more accessible,” it had said.
