Twitter has long ceased to be the 140 characters social network, but many people keep the customs of that time and continue to express themselves a lot in a few words. However, among all the updates that the social network seems to be exploring in 2020, the possibility of making tweets with voice.
Twitter has announced the launch of a test available to a limited group of iOS users of voice note tweets. Tweets using the new feature include a user profile image with a play button to listen to up to 140 seconds of audio from a tweet.

As the platform describes in his blog, tweeting with your voice note is not much different from tweeting with text and the idea is rather to reduce misunderstandings and “create a more human experience”.

1.Open the Tweet composer and tap the new icon with wavelengths .
2.The profile picture of the creator will appear with the save button at the bottom; tap it to save your tweet.
3.Every voice note captures up to 140 seconds of audio. Once you reach the time limit for a message, a new voice note tweet is automatically launched to create a discussion thread.
4.Once you are finished, press the “Ready” button to complete your recording and return to the composer screen to tweet.

On Twitter, they say, “We can’t wait to see how people will use this to make their voices heard and add to the public conversation” and so far, personally, I can’t imagine the dynamics of the platform with these tweets. and their more human touch.
