Days after giving Twitter users more control over how they converse on the microblogging site, and also the ability to add stories using "Fleets", the bird app has a new feature in its kitty that will let you speak your mind. Literally.

Aimed at adding a "human touch" to Twitter conversations, the platform rolled out the feature exclusively to iOS users on Wednesday.

As of now, Twitter allows users to type out 280 characters in a tweet, so giving them the access to voice notes would mean one could add "more" to a tweet. Each voice tweet is 140 seconds of audio. If you have more to say, you can simply record more and the new voice note will automatically turn into a tweet thread.

"There’s a lot that can be left unsaid or uninterpreted using text, so we hope voice Tweeting will create a more human experience for listeners and storytellers alike," Twitter wrote in its blog. Adding that sometimes the conversational nuances were lost in translation.

"Whether it’s #storytime about your encounter with wild geese in your neighborhood, a journalist sharing breaking news, or a first-hand account from a protest, we hope voice Tweeting gives you the ability to share your perspectives quickly and easily with your voice."
