Twitter has launched a new feature that will allow users to create tweets using their voice
According to Twitter, a single voice tweet will last for 140 seconds and automatically begins a new voice tweet to create a thread if the user still has something to say.
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.
According to the company’s Product designer, Maya Patterson and Senior Software Engineer, Remy Bourgoin, said,There’s a lot that can be left unsaid or uninterpreted using text, so we hope voice Tweeting will create a more human experience for listeners and storytellers alike.”
A tweet that consists of 280 characters is no longer sufficient and some conversation gets lost in translation.
Whether it’s #storytime about your encounter with wild geese in your neighborhood, a journalist sharing breaking news, or a first-hand account from a protest, we hope voice Tweeting gives you the ability to share your perspectives quickly and easily with your voice.”
“We can’t wait to see how people will use this to make their voices heard and add to the public conversation.”

Twitter is where you go to talk about what’s happening. Over the years, photos, videos, gifs, and extra characters have allowed you to add your own flair and personality to your conversations
The new features are:
1. The feature is currently only for iOS users.
2. Voice tweets can only be added to original tweets, so you can’t include them in replies or retweets with a comment.
3. You can’t reply a tweet using voice tweet
4. Your voice tweet can’t be longer than 140 seconds; a new voice note will start if you reach that limit. Twitter will automatically create a thread out of subsequent voice notes.
5. Voice tweets cannot be downloaded by other users and the number of listens for a voice note show up right under the note, just like on YouTube.
