How was your week? It is like the days go by so fast but not without a good dose of entertainment.
Twitter voice note. We didn’t see that coming at all. The words platform integrating voice. Now you can speak as you tweet! Twitter’s feature exclusive to iOS users allows voice notes to be added to tweets.
The feature is currently only available to ‘a limited group of people’ on iOS. Would get to most iOS users by the end of the month.
I jumped on the rave to test it. It is so cool. You can produce, record and publish with just one button.
Could this be the beginning of a voice revolution on Twitter?
I think it is a step in the right direction. Voice is trending, it will be big in the next five years. Think Siri, Alexa, Google Assistant. 2019 was a year of ambitious development and growth for voice technology. Google, Amazon and Microsoft are heavy investors in this sector.
Mixed reactions on twitter right after the launch of Twitter Voice notes.
In Ghana, Yaw bossman seized the moment with a Twitter voice note. His Voice note experimentation went viral so he conducted a quick market research (twitter poll) to find out if people will be interested in a Twitter radio hosted by him.
The overwhelming affirmative majority in the twitter poll results propelled him to action. He jumped straight into producing his prototype … Announcing the launch of the Twitter radio.
Twitter Voice note will unleash new voices, allow unheard talents to show off and be found.
Then there was Waakye in a Jar.
Ghanaians love their Waakye in the leaf. Waakye is a celebrated Meal in Ghana. Waakye Festivals are commonplace in the country. Photos of Waakye in a Jar packaged by Jartogo for Rockz Waakye caused an uproar on twitter with most people dismissing the idea of having their favourite meal in a Jar.
Citi TV to the Rescue
The creators of Rockz Waakye, Reggie Rockstone and his wife ( Dr. Zilla ) came on live TV to explain the concept and assure people that this is not a replacement for Waakye in leaves.
Their explanation swayed people away from condemnation to acceptance and agreement. The power of words.
Arsenal got whipped by Man City this week as well.
Pep Guardiola’s men beat 10-man Arsenal 3-0 at an empty stadium to secure the first win of the Premier League’s restart on Wednesday. Same old Arsenal. They were outclassed. To all the Arsenal fans out there, you are the real definition of loyalty. You guys try.
David Luiz with his bizarre display might not get the new contract he is negotiating with Arsenal. Got a red card after he brought down Mahrez for attempting to run past him.
