Twitter has announced that it will introduce a new feature which will allow users to put out their tweet in their own voice. Now, this feature will allow users to capture audio up to 140 seconds in a single tweet. This feature has been in the works for a while now and this will come on the back of several new features which includes Instagram-like feature called Fleets, which has received mixed reactions from the users.
As per Maya Patterson and Remy Bourgain, Staff Product Designer and Senior Software Engineer “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. But 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.”
This feature will be introduced for users and the iOS users can avail of this feature first.
Hence, when one wants to compose a tweet, one can find a wavelength icon placed next to the camera icon. You then have to tap on the icon there will be your profile photo with the record button at the bottom. Now, for you to start recording your tweet, you will have the icon to record your voice.
One can keep singing and saying for up to 140 seconds and once you reach the time limit, a new voice tweet would start automatically which would then create a thread on Twitter.
Once you are done recording, tap on the Done button to end the recording. Always keep in mind that if you do not turn the recording off, a thread will be created.
“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. 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,” the Twitter blog read.
