Twitter voice messages in Direct Messages

Twitter is one of the best micro-blogging platforms out there. People all over the world came here to talk about anything that is happening around them. They express themselves with photos, videos, gifs, and text. As Twitter is a micro-blogging platform most people post their expressions using text. However, sometimes text isn’t enough to fill all the context. For example, if we compare the text with audio then, audio is more personalized in comparison to text.

Looking at the same, from last year, Twitter started testing Voice Tweets that let users post tweets in audio (in their own voice). Posting tweets in own voice makes the tweet more personalized.

However, Voice Tweets has its own limitation. For example, users can post only 140 seconds long voice tweets.

Also, right now, only iOS users have the ability to post voice tweets. Android, Web, and other OS users can listen to them.

So, if you own an iOS device, for example, iPhone or iPad then, here is how you can post voice tweets on Twitter.
