Twitter in India is testing out a new feature similar to the Instagram Stories. Called Fleets, these tweets will disappear after 24 hours. Also, there will be no Likes, Retweets, or public replies to these tweets. "We learned from research that people don’t Tweet because Tweets are public, feel permanent, and display the number of Retweets and Likes. We hope Fleets will empower many more people to express themselves more freely," said the company in a statement.

You know, we’ll see. When I came on board to write the character, [Marvel editor] Sana Amanat and I thought we would be lucky if we got to ten issues. And then maybe, maybe at some point, Kamala would show up as a sort of sidekick in some bigger books, and that way, she would go on in the Marvel universe. We had not a lot of expectations. And now she’s a phenomenon. She’s in cartoons and she’s been on the Avengers and she’s in a bunch of other books. And we’re going into the tenth trade paperback of a series that we thought would only last ten issues. (Laughs) So I think at some point it will become clear that Ms. Marvel has become bigger than me and that there are other amazing storytellers who can take her places that I can’t. And honestly, that is not even bittersweet to me, that is amazing because we never thought we would get here and I’m honestly thrilled, as I’ve said, to have seen her show up in somebody else’s book, … [Read more...] about ‘Ms. Marvel’ Creator on the Right-Wing Backlash to Her Muslim Superhero and Remixing Wonder Woman
