Twitter can be an amazing source of information, it can also be a cesspool of vial and abhorrent behaviour. These risks make it important to pick who you follow wisely, and to take what you read with a bit of salt and – hopefully – an external source of reality…
For the purpose of Twitter’s new feature in testing, let’s assume the best of people. In a blog post, Twitter announced they’re making the ability to tweet using voice clips (your own voice) available to some users.
In the short term, the feature will be available to a very small segment of their iOS users. There are few details about their plans for expansion to more users or to Android at this time. Typically, these announcements are an early precursor to a wider rollout including to the Android platform.
Creating voice Tweets will be available to a limited group of people on Twitter for iOS to start, but in the coming weeks, everyone on iOS should be able to Tweet with their voice.
Everyone will be able to see (hear) them and reply.
It’s going to be fascinating to see the new and creative ways that users come up with to use the Voice clip features. Given the public nature of Twitter, what could possibly go wrong?
