Sometimes 280 characters aren’t enough and some conversational nuances are lost in translation. So starting today, we’re testing a new feature that will add a more human touch to the way we use Twitter – your very own voice,” Twitter’s Maya Patterson and Rémy Bourgoin said in a blog post.
“Each voice tweet captures up to 140 seconds of audio. Have more to say? Keep talking. Once you reach the time limit for a tweet, a new voice tweet starts automatically to create a thread,” Twitter said.
Twitter says that the feature should be available to all iPhone users in the coming weeks however they did not make mention of when it would be available to Android users. For the iPhone users who have access to this newly-added function, to compose an audio clip, you just need to tap on the waveform button on the page where you compose tweets, a red record button will appear on the screen which you can start recording your messages.
