Twitter is rolling out to its platform a new type of tweet — audio tweets — allowing users to share thoughts in the audio form inside their feeds.
The feature will only be available to some iOS users for now, though the company says all iOS users should have access “in the coming weeks.” No word on an Android or web rollout yet.
For users with access to the new feature, the process is pretty straightforward. Users can write a new tweet as they normally might, but now, alongside options to attach a photo or video, there’s a new button where users can record a quick audio message. Twitter shared the full workflow in a tweet from the company’s official account.
You can Tweet a Tweet. But now you can Tweet your voice!

Twitter said that if you reach the time limit for an audio clip, it will automatically start a second audio tweet and create a thread with all of these voice recordings.
