has launched an audio-only broadcasting
feature so that users can broadcast their voice to their followers without being seen. The feature is currently publicly available for all iOS users
of the Twitter
. Users can go to the "Go Live"
button on the compose screen to use this audio broadcast option.
However, they need to update their iOS Twitter
or Periscope app
to the latest version. This new feature seems like Twitter's attempt to introduce a new type of live streaming platform other than live video
. Podcasts are becoming quite popular in the recent years, hence this move by Twitter seems a reasonable one to get a share of the growing industry. Twitter
is also testing out a new design that will add the "Explore"
tab and Bookmarks to the desktop site's home page. These features are currently being rolled out to only a small number of users. Twitter
asked for feedback from users who were able to see those features in their accounts.
The Explore tab
has a bunch of things like Moments
and other insights to keep the user up to date about the current happenings at a quick glance.
