You Can Now Tweet with Your Voice
Twitter is known for its ability for its users to voice their opinions and express their emotions towards popular topics and current events. According to CNN, Twitter has been attempting for years to straighten out any misinformation among controversial topics. Now users are able to clear up any confusion by using audio tweets.
This feature was inspired by the new app Clubhouse, an app that wants its users to use their voice in chat rooms. However, clubhouse recently came under fire because it highlights verbal harassment and escalates hateful words that are more difficult to understand through a text message.
A Twitter spokesperson said that “It's working to incorporate additional monitoring systems ahead of rolling voice tweets out more broadly. It would review any reported voice tweets in line with its rules and take action.”
Users will not be able to reply to tweets using the audio feature, only compose tweets. Users have a 140 second limit to their audio tweet and the user is able to continue recording and create a thread of their audio message. Twitter said that all iOS users should have access to this feature in the coming weeks.
Twitter also 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."
