PALO ALTO: Twitter Inc has resolved most performance issues with its new ephemeral "fleets" product and expects to complete the global launch by Friday, the company's product chief said in a live video on Thursday.

"As we were rolling out over the first 24 hours, we stumbled into some load performance issues," said Twitter Product Lead Kayvon Beykpour.

"We have since caught most of the issues that were concerning us in terms of slowing down the rollout ... we're hoping that, certainly in the next 24 hours, pretty much everyone will have it," he said.
