Record your voice notes to publish them as voice tweets

Twitter originally started as an SMS text-based service. Over time, it evolved into a strong micro-blogging platform, enabling more expression. Now, it even allows its users to tweet audio messages through the voice tweets feature. It's a move is intended to make it easier for users to Tweet on the go with their voice.

Voice tweets enable you to record audio snippets and publish them as tweets. You don't have to type words manually but keep talking. Each voice Tweet you create can accommodate up to 140 seconds of audio. Even if you have something more to say once this time limit lapses, don't stop, keep talking!! You can start a thread with multiple Tweets and extend it up to 25 tweets.

Your current media profile photo will also be added to your audio attachment and people will see the same on their timeline alongside other Tweets.

If the audio message is longer, it will automatically advance for threaded voice Tweets.

Hope that makes sense!
