Twitter has announced a replacement feature, an audio tweet… meaning you’ll now record your tweet in audio then tweet rather than typing. Beginning from today, iOS users should begin receiving the new feature.
The feature will allow users to record audio clips of up to 140 seconds and fasten these sound clips to their tweets.
“Sometimes 280 characters aren’t enough and a few conversational nuances are lost in translation,” said Twitter.
“So starting today, we’re testing a replacement feature which will add a more human touch to the way we use Twitter – your very own voice.”
How to Tweet an Audio Clip
To tweet an audio clip, users will open the tweet composer and tap on the new audio tweet icon.
This will open the new Twitter sound recording interface, which can allow users to start out recording their sound clips.
According to Twitter, if you reach the deadline for an audio clip, it’ll automatically start a second audio tweet and make a thread with all of those voice recordings.
Once users have finished recording their audio clip (or tweets), they’re going to got to tap the Done button, which can return them to the normal tweet composer screen.
Publishing the audio tweet is then just like publishing a traditional tweet.
Audio tweets automatically create a picture during which users will get to tap to concentrate on the clip.
“Creating voice Tweets are going to be available to a limited group of individuals on Twitter for iOS to start out but within the coming weeks, everyone on iOS should be ready to Tweet with their voice,” said Twitter.
It confirmed that each one user is going to be ready to hear audio tweets, no matter the platform.
It is unclear now when Twitter plans to roll the feature out on Android devices; except, for now, iOS users should still rock audio tweets.
