After Twitter Emoji Reactions, a new feature is just introduced “Audio Tweets”. This feature allows you to record audio and attach them to your tweets. However, it’s not available for everyone yet, only for some users having an iPhone or an iPad.
Sometimes 280 characters aren’t enough and some conversational nuances are lost in translation. So starting today, we’re testing a new feature that will add a more human touch to the way we use Twitter — your very own voice.Twitter’s Maya Patterson
You can Tweet a Tweet. But now you can Tweet your voice!— Twitter (@Twitter) June 17, 2020
Rolling out today on iOS, you can now record and Tweet with audio. pic.twitter.com/jezRmh1dkD
Starting today, limited iOS users will be able to compose a tweet using their voice. If you got access to this feature, you will notice a soundwave icon beside the camera icon. Click on that to use Audio Tweets feature. You can record up to 140 seconds of audio on a single tweet.
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.
However, you can’t use the Audio Tweets feature in a retweet or a comment. Also, your profile pic will be added as a thumbnail to that audio tweet. Senior Editor at The Verge posted a tweet using this new feature.

If you are an iOS user, and still don’t have access to this feature, don’t worry they are working on expanding it to more users. Be patient.
