Building in Public November 22, 2020

I am Fleeting every day about running a $5k MRR SaaS!

A lot of people were skeptical about the latest Twitter feature, Fleets (for the uninitiated, this is basically Stories on Twitter), but I think it opens up a lot of possibilities!

For one, my Twitter audience is mostly aspiring indie hackers and other folks in tech, so it's definitely a welcoming place to share the daily ins and outs of being a solo founder.

I've always wanted to do more "building in public" but I'm too much of a perfectionist with my content that I blog very rarely (😅) and Tweet only when there are major milestones to share.

I see Fleets as an opportunity to be even more transparent about the journey and quite honestly, to push myself out of my comfort zone (😖).

So, if you're interested, feel free to follow me on Twitter and check out my Fleets!

If you catch today's, I walk you through deploying the latest version of Lunch Money. And if you miss any of the days, don't worry, I plan on stitching together all the Fleets of the week and posting that as a Tweet!

Let me know what you think and if there's anything in particular you'd be interested in seeing more of!

    Hey Jen... I have been watching your fleets (sounds weird saying fleets) and I am enjoying the videos you are making!

    The caption/lower third are a good touch. Looks like you are putting in effort for these fleets (they really have to rethink the name)

    Jen, I wanted to follow you on Twitter after reading the post but the I realized that I already do 😅 Will be in the lookout for your Fleets in the coming weeks.

    Looks great, and I followed you!

    Just a question - I'm not sure where I can find those Fleets. Is it a new functionality that is not rolled out yet to all Twitter users, or am I just missing something... 🤔

      I think it's only available on the iOS and Android app right now!

        Ah I see, thanks! I'll take a look at the app then.

    This is a very good iniciative! I have in mind using fleets (when they will appear in my Twitter) to share my journey making side projects.

    You can make a thread with all of your fleets of the week and also you can submit the thread on (that is the first website I'm launching)

      Hi Teodora, I love that you are also building a Twitter-based product. I created a while ago to receive Twitter Likes via email.

      Also please correct me if I‘m wrong but there is no way currently to get Fleets data from the Twitter API hence it wouldn’t be possible to add them to any kind of threads, right?
