Stephen: Twitter unveils audio tweets for iOS users

Twitter announced Wednesday that it is rolling out a new audio tweet feature to select iOS users, some of whom will notice a small sound wave icon when composing a tweet, Mashable reports. Those users can click the icon and will be able to record their voice and post it in their tweet. Users will be able to record 140 seconds of audio per tweet. Any longer recording will be automatically broken up into segments in threaded tweets. They will appear on user timelines just like a normal tweet, and will included a start and pause option. The image user’s avatar will appear as a visual. The rollout will start with a small group of users, but will eventually roll out to all using Twitter iOS.
