The news from Twitter has a time limit. As the very first tweets had a maximum of 140 characters, the voice messages can be recorded for a maximum of 140 seconds each. This means that lovers of long vowels will have to learn to condense their thoughts in just over 2 minutes.

The novelty will be implemented for all users, iOS and Android. If registration is for test countries only, reception is global. For the moment the messages can be recorded exclusively via the mobile app but can also be heard from the web version.

Private audio messages follow the voice tweets launched last year and arrive at a time when the seems to have become the new trend of social networks, as demonstrated by the case of Clubhouse and Twitter itself with its Audio Spaces, rooms that allow you to chat with people in real time. Audio Spaces and private voice messages are still features that Twitter is currently testing with a small number of users but which, together with voice tweets, direct the social network towards conversations with a more human touch.
