Twitter launches 'audio' tweet feature
California: Twitter has announced to launch a new feature that will allow users to tweet out voice notes in place of traditional text posts.

Everyone on the platform will soon be able to send 'audio' tweet, the company announced. Adding voice notes to your tweets is pretty simple. Users will have an option to share audio recordings of up to 140 seconds directly to their feed to accompany the text, photos, videos, and GIFs they already can share with their followers.

All you need to do is go to the Tweet composer and tap the wavelength icon next to the camera icon. After clicking, you will be able to see your profile photo with the record button at the bottom. You just have to tap the record button to get started and share the voice tweet with your followers.

The new feature is designed to "add a more human touch" to using Twitter, the company said in a blog post.

The ability to create voice tweets is only available to a "limited group" of iOS users to start, but Twitter says the feature should roll out to everyone using the Twitter for iOS app "in the coming weeks."
