Twitter Launches Disappearing Messages Feature, ‘Fleets’

Twitter is introducing its own version of 24-hour disappearing messages dubbed “Fleets”. “That thing you didn’t Tweet but wanted to but didn’t but got so close but then were like nah. We have a place for that now—Fleets!” Tweeted the microblogging platform through its official account on Tuesday. “We want to make it possible for you to have conversations on the platform in new ways, with less pressure and more control”, Mo Al Adham, Twitter’s Product Manager said in a press statement.

The feature was announced earlier this year with trials conducted in select countries. “Through our tests in Brazil, Italy, India, and South Korea, we learned Fleets helped people feel more comfortable joining the conversation”, said Joshua Harris, Twitter’s design director.

Fleets starts “rolling out to everyone starting today”, according to the platform. The big question, however, still remains: Are we ever getting that ‘Edit’ button?

‘Home Alone’ Movie Turns 30

On Tuesday marked the 30th anniversary of beloved holiday film, “Home Alone”. The comedy franchise became an instant hit when it first hit theatres in 1990, topping comedy’s box office hits of all-time and grossing an estimated $477 million.

In a recent interview on whether “Home Alone” would potentially get a remake, director Chris Columbus refuted any possibility saying, “What’s the point? I’m a firm believer that you don’t remake films that have had the longevity of Home Alone. You’re not going to create lightning in a bottle again. It’s just not going to happen.”

“Home Alone” followed the story of Kevin, an eight-year-old troublemaker who fights to protect his house from a pair of burglars, when he is accidentally left home alone by his family during Christmas vacation.

‘Tom & Jerry’ Live Action Remake Trailer Released

Warner Bros. has released the official trailer of “Tom & Jerry”, a live-action animated movie. One of the most beloved rivalries in history will be reignited when Jerry moves into New York City’s finest hotel on the eve of “the wedding of the century,” forcing the event’s desperate planner to hire Tom to get rid of him.

The ensuing cat and mouse battle threatens to destroy her career, the wedding, and possibly the hotel itself. But soon, an even bigger problem arises: a diabolically ambitious staffer conspiring against all three of them. An eye-popping blend of classic animation and live-action, Tom and Jerry’s new adventure stakes new ground for the iconic characters and forces them to do the unthinkable… work together to save the day.

Directed by Tim Story and starring Chloe Grace Moretz as Kayla, Colin Jost as Dwayne, Michael Peña as Terrance, Ken Jeong as Jackie and Rob Delaney as DuBros, “Tom & Jerry” is expected to arrive in theatres March 5th, 2021.
