Twitter Announces 'Voice Tweets'

June 18, 2020

Tweeting just got a little louder. 

Twitter has announced "voice tweets". Users can now record up to 40 seconds of audio & post it to their feed. Twitter announced this feature will "create a more human experience for listeners and storytellers". 

Creating a voice tweet is similar to regular tweeting, but users tap a new icon with wavelengths on it to record. Voice tweets are limited to chunks of 140 seconds -- an apparent nod to Twitter's original character limit -- but users can keep recording and it'll automatically create a thread.

It is currently available to IOS users but will be available to everyone soon.
