Funny Reactions From Nigerians As Twitter Introduces Audio Tweet Feature

Twitter audio
Micro-blogging social platform, Twitter, has announced the introduction of a feature — audio tweets — to its platform, allowing users share thoughts in audio form.

The company made the announcement on Wednesday via Twitter saying;

It stated that it is rolling out the feature to record audio snippets and attach them to tweets.

The new add-on is available first on iOS devices and launched on Wednesday for a limited group of people.

According to Twitter’s senior software engineer, Rémy Bourgoin and staff product designer, Maya Patterson in a blog post;

Sometimes 280 characters are not enough and some conversational nuances are lost in translation. So starting today, we are testing a new feature that will add a more human touch to the way we use Twitter — your very own voice.

However, audio can only be added to original tweets and not replies or retweets with a comment.

Another minor thing to note is that whatever your profile picture is when you record an audio clip will always be attached to that audio tweet.

Twitter said;

Your current profile photo will be added as a static image on your audio attachment and will not refresh if you update your profile photo.

It stated that;

You can listen to audio tweets by hitting the play button. On iOS, a dock will appear near the bottom of the app so you can listen to audio tweets and continue scrolling through your timeline. They will also keep playing in the background if you switch to another app.

The announcement has since sparked funny reactions from many Nigerians.
