Twitter is also rolling out the option to add background images or videos to Fleets. Twitter announced in a Tweet that the update is rolling out on iOS. “Now you can bless the Tweets in your Fleets with pics of baby pigeons or whatever pics and vids you want really. Rolling out on iOS,” the Tweet read.

To add a background image to Fleets, users can either click a new photo or select an existing one from their phone’s photo gallery. This is not the first time Twitter has added features for users to let them customise Fleets.

After rolling out Fleets for everyone globally in November last year, Twitter added the ability to add GIFs and stickers to Fleets earlier this month. It is available as an update for Twitter’s Android, as well as, iOS versions.
