Twitter starts rolling out audio tweets on iOS

  • The Verge
  • 3 weeks ago
  • Twitter is rolling out the ability to record audio snippets and attach them to your tweets.
  • The new feature is available first on iOS and launching today for “a limited group of people.”
  • If you’ve got access to it, you’ll see a new waveform icon beside the camera icon when composing a tweet. Tap that, and a red record button appears at the bottom of the screen, which you can tap to start recording your message.
  • Audio can only be added to original tweets, so you can’t include them in 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 reinstates Zero Hedge account saying its earlier suspension was 'an error'

  • The Verge
  • 3 weeks ago
  • Twitter has reinstated the account for markets blogging site Zero Hedge, and says its decision to suspend the account for “platform manipulation” earlier this year was a mistake.
  • The January suspension of its Twitter account followed a report from Zero Hedge suggesting that a Chinese scientist had created the coronavirus in a lab, a theory that has since been widely debunked.
  • Zero Hedge says in a post on its site Saturday that Twitter told them the suspension was for violating its rules against abuse and harassment, and reiterated its position that the suspension was “motivated by reasons other than the stated ones.” Its post argues Zero Hedge did not dox the scientist in question, but used publicly available information in its report.
