Twitter has come up with a new feature that will allow users to post audio tweets. Each voice Tweet capture up to 140 seconds of audio.

The micro-blogging platform has put up a blog post to announce the feature.

The blog says: “We’re testing a new feature that will add a more human touch to the way we use Twitter – your very own voice.”

The post details the way the feature has to be used: “Tweeting with your voice is not too different from Tweeting with text. To start, open the Tweet composer and tap the new icon with wavelengths. You’ll see your profile photo with the record button at the bottom – tap this to record your voice.

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. Once you’re done, tap the Done button to end your recording and go back to the composer screen to Tweet.

People will see your voice Tweet appear on their timeline alongside other Tweets. To listen, tap the image. On iOS only, playback will start in a new window docked at the bottom of your timeline and you can listen as you scroll. You can also keep listening while doing other things on your phone or on the go.”

The Voice Tweets facility will now be available to a limited group of people on Twitter for iOS to start but in the coming weeks everyone on iOS should be able to Tweet with their voice, the blog further said.
