Now you can send that talk: Twitter Introduces voice tweets

IT News Nigeria:

*Users of the Twitter app on Android devices will have to wait

Twitter has announced today the introduction is a new voice tweet feature, allowing users to share 140 seconds of audio with each other.

Twitter said in a blog post introducing the feature that “there’s a lot that can be left unsaid or uninterpreted using text, so we hope voice Tweeting will create a more human experience for listeners and storytellers alike.”

According to Skynews, the new feature has already begun rolling out on iOS devices and is available today for “a limited group of people” said Twitter, although everyone using an iPhone should be able to access the feature in the coming weeks.

It is not clear if and when it will be available for users of the Twitter app on Android devices.

Those who have access to it can find it by tapping the waveform icon in the app when composing a tweet.

This will take them to a new screen where they can record 140 seconds of audio. If they run over this time then Twitter will automatically create a second chained tweet to post the rest in.

Voice tweets will appear in the timelines of users’ followers just like normal tweets, but they are only available as original tweets, the company has said – so they won’t appear in replies or as comments in a retweet.
