Twitter Streets: Hot Trends Today- June 18
Twitter Introduces Voice Notes
If you thought Instagram, Telegram and WhatsApp were enough for voice notes, hold your breath. On Wednesday, Twitter introduced an audio tweet feature dubbed “voice tweets” currently available on iOS devices. “Sometimes 280 characters aren’t enough and some conversational nuances are lost in translation. So starting today, we’re testing a new feature that will add a more human touch to the way we use Twitter — your very own voice”, reads a statement from its blog.
The new feature, which is available on the “compose tweet” window, prompts a “What’s happening. hit record” wording. This allows you to easily record a voice note of up to 140 seconds and send it out as a tweet: “Each voice tweet captures up to 140 seconds of audio. Have more to say? Keep talking. Once you reach the time limit for a tweet, a new voice tweet starts automatically to create a thread,” says Twitter. The voice tweet can only be added to an original tweet, not to reply or quote. Plans to roll out the latest feature on Android devices are yet to be revealed.
You can Tweet a Tweet. But now you can Tweet your voice!

‘Toy Story 3’ at 10
Tomorrow (June 19) will be Toy Story 3’s 10th anniversary, and the internet is abuzz about it. The Lee Unkrich-directed story line shifts to the toys mistakenly getting delivered to a day-care center instead of the attic before Andy leaves for college. Woody then takes charge in convincing the other toys to return home. The original “Toy Story” first premiered in theaters in 1995 and the sequels have been massive successes in the past two decades.
