TWITTER RELEASING AUDIO TWEET FEATURE FOR iOS USERs
Twitter has launched the option to add audio clips of 140 seconds in tweets on iOS. According to the company, the new feature is available first on iOS and launching today for a limited group of people.
How to record an audio tweet?
If you have got access to it, you can see a waveform icon beside the camera icon when creating a tweet. Tap that, and a red record button appears at the bottom of the screen, which you can tap to start recording your message.
Voice Recording Limit
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. Audio can be added in original tweets, so you can’t add audio in replies.
Your profile picture will appear in the center of the playback while audio clip will pop up in the stream and in tweets.
One thing that’s certainly an open question is how audio tweets will add to Twitter’s abuse problem. Twitter has plenty of challenges when it comes to flagging harassment among text-only tweets, which are much easier to auto-flag with machine learning tools. Decoding abuse in audio snippets is a much taller order for these systems.
