Voice tweets enable you to record audio snippets and publish them as tweets. You don’t need to manually type words for this. Each voice Tweet you create can accommodate up to 140 seconds of audio. Even if there’s something more to say it can be carried over as a thread with multiple Tweets (up to 25 tweets).
How to use the voice tweets feature?
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 Voice tweets. It’s a move that intends to make it easier for users to Tweet on the go with their voice.
- Launch the Twitter for iOS app.
- Tap the Compose Tweet icon.
- Choose the Voice icon.
- Press the Record button.
- Hit the Send button when done.
Tweeting with your voice is perhaps not entirely different from Tweeting with text. It’s just that you record a snippet of audio to be posted as a tweet.
How to Tweet with your voice or audio
Voice tweets are a simple solution to add a more human touch to the way we use Twitter or express ourselves on the social media platform. The feature isn’t hard to find.
Launch the Twitter for iOS app.
Tap the Tweet compose icon (visible as an encircled feather at the bottom of the screen).
Tap the voice/audio icon as shown in the image above.
Tap the Mic icon to start recording your voice.
When you have finished recording the message, simply tap the Done button.
The maximum recording time duration of Twitter voice tweets can extend up to 2 minutes and 20 seconds. If the voice message exceeds this limit or appears to be quite longer then, it can be threaded up to 25 Tweets.
When you’re ready, tap the Tweet button to publish your tweet.
if you would like to delete the voice tweet, simply tap Cancel and then choose the Delete option.
Once you hit the Tweet button, your voice tweet will go live instantly as Tweets with audio attachments.
Your current media profile photo will show alongside your audio attachment and people will see the same on their timeline alongside other Tweets.
To listen to the tweet, they can simply tap the image and playback will start instantly in an audio dock at the bottom of their screen. If the audio message is longer, it will automatically advance for threaded Tweets.
Hope that makes sense!
