Want to send a tweet, but at the same time, you don’t want to type the long message? Well, don’t worry! Twitter has finally brought ‘audio tweets’ allowing you to send voice audio tweets on Twitter.
Twitter is a microblogging platform where you can send short posts, known as tweets. It started as a text-based communication platform through SMS. So, initially, the limit of each tweet was 140 characters. In 2017, Twitter increased it to 280 characters.
Three years later, in 2020, we see a new way to tweet around: Audio Tweets. Twitter has made it easy to send long tweets in a short and straightforward style using audio, just like we do on Whatsapp.
Well, this Audio tweet feature is currently available only for iOS users, and there are no words on Android as of now. If you have an iPhone, then you can easily use this feature to send a message to your friends without typing a text. In the coming few weeks, all the iOS users will be able to use the audio tweet feature.
In today’s post, let’s have a look at this new feature and discuss how you can send voice audio tweets using Twitter.
Twitter Voice Audio Tweets:
Audio Tweets feature allows the users to record up to 140 seconds (2 minutes 20 seconds), and then you can send the tweet. If the message is longer than 140 seconds, then a new audio tweet will be recorded automatically. So, two audio tweets will be sent to the other user. The followers will also see the audio tweet on their timeline along with text, photo and video tweets. If you want to listen to the audio tweet, then just click on the image.
The time limit of recording a tweet is by default, so we can’t change it.
- Audio tweets will be shown on the timeline as Tweets with audio attachments, and people can play the audio.
- Your current profile picture will be shown on your audio.
- Clicking on any voice tweet will play the audio message.
- When you click on play, the audio dock will be minimized automatically, and it will be seen on the bottom of the screen. With this, you can scroll through twitter and listen to the audio at the same time.
So, this was all about audio tweets. Now, let us check out how to use this Audio Tweets feature and send an audio tweet.
