In a nod toward the ever popular podcast movement, Twitter just announced a new feature they are rolling out called Voice Tweets. Currently this is only offered for iOS users (no word on Android yet) and not everyone has this functionality in their account yet. To see if your account has been activated for this, look for the new audio sound icon, next to the image carousal, as shown in the image below to the far left. Once you click on that, you will be live to voice record – illustrated in the middle image below.
Twitter recently introduced a new feature for scheduling tweets in advance through its browser-based version. This feature was once only available through third-party tools. When using Twitter in a web browser, users will now see an option to schedule a tweet from the composer screen. Users can schedule a tweet at any time of the day up to 18 months in advance. This feature isn’t currently available on Twitter’s official mobile app, but these users should see the scheduling in the near future.
Twitter has launched a test of it latest feature called Fleets, which are temporary tweets that disappear after 24 hours. Twitter is one of the last major social platforms to test out a Stories format. This concept was first popularized by Snapchat however, you can now find a version of Stories across Instagram, Facebook, WhatsApp, YouTube and others.
