In this photo illustration, The Twitter logo is displayed on a mobile device as the company announced it's initial public offering and debut on the New York Stock Exchange on November 7, 2013 in London, England. Twitter went public on the NYSE opening at USD 26 per share, valuing the company's worth at an estimated USD 18 billion.

“We’re sorry or you’re welcome,” the official Twitter account tweeted out Wednesday in regards to the “Fleet” function on the platform.

Twitter announced that it will be removing “Fleets” on August 3. Those who are unfamilar, “Fleets” are posts you can add to your profile that will be removed in 24 hours, similar to Instagram “Stories” or a Snapchat post.

In a blog post, Twitter said lack of engagement is the ultimate reason for this decision, “But, in the time since we introduced Fleets to everyone, we haven’t seen an increase in the number of new people joining the conversation with Fleets like we hoped.”

But, don’t worry because Twitter will be adding new functions in order to enhance interactions on the platform, “We’re evolving what Twitter is, and trying bigger, bolder things to serve the public conversation.”
