So I’m guessing you’ve seen a voice tweet on Twitter and you’re wondering how the user pulled through with it. I know your curious mind has even taken it as a video till you found many more. Anyways, it’s a Voice Tweet feature, and here is How To Voice Tweet On Twitter. The Voice Tweet feature was first announced on the Micro-blogging platform on Wednesday 18th June 2018. Just as tweeting texts allow a user to tweet 140 characters, twitter’s voice tweets allow its users to post audio clips of up to 140 seconds in length. If a user’s voice tweet becomes longer than the allocated 140 seconds, a new tweet starts automatically and changes the tweet to a thread. Oops, we aren’t getting carried away. I’ll be dropping a step-by-step guide on how to Voice Tweet on Twitter. So “You can Tweet a Tweet. But now you can Tweet your voice!”

What to Know about Voice Tweets
Irrespective of how cool and interesting this feature proves to be, there are still some things that irk twitter’s users
- At the moment, the Voice Tweet feature is only available to iOS users.
- Voice tweets can only be created as original tweets. You cannot include them in replies or retweets with a comment.
- Your voice tweet can’t exceed a length of 140 seconds. If you’re trying to record a voice tweet of more than 140 seconds, a new voice note will start and Twitter would automatically create a thread with subsequent voice notes.
- Voice tweets cannot be downloaded by other twitter users.
- The number of listens on a voice tweet shows up below the note, just like on YouTube.
However, this feature raised an uproar as android users are curious as to when this feature would be available to them. Although only iOS users can create Voice Tweets, anyone on twitter can listen and reply to voice tweets – irrespective of the platform they’re logged in to.
