Twitter Starts Rolling Out Audio Tweets

Good news! If you’re an iPhone or iPad user, that wish just came true. Twitter announced on Wednesday that it’s rolling out a new audio record feature to iOS users. 

Starting today, some iOS users will notice a small soundwave icon when composing a tweet. A user simply needs to click on that icon and they will be able to record their voice and post the audio embedded in their tweet.

This new Twitter feature will record up to 140 seconds of audio per tweet. If you go over that allotted time, the app will keep recording and automatically break up the segments into threaded tweets.

Your audience will view these audio tweets on their timeline just as if it was any other tweet. The audio appears like an embedded video with a start and pause option. Twitter inserts an image with your account avatar as a visual.

According to Twitter, the new audio recording feature is currently available for only a small group of users. The rollout will continue over the next couple of weeks until everyone using Twitter for iOS has access to the feature.
