If you think that after you upload a story and then delete it and then upload another one and it will last only for half the time of the first uploaded story, then that’s not the case.

If you have deleted a story and then uploaded another one, the new story will also last for twenty-four hours and not half of the time of the previous one. 

In case you see your stories disappearing before twenty-four hours, then it’s TikTok who has removed it due to some testing features or server issues. There is nothing to be worried about.
