The social media microblogging platform, Twitter, has just officially integrated podcast features into its platform. This was announced via a blog post on social media. Twitter’s latest feature is coming as Meta’s Facebook recently announced that it was closing down its podcast option less than a year after debuting.
The blog post read: “Twitter helps people connect with unique and compelling voices around the world. With podcasts, we’re taking that connection to a whole new level. This redesign launches personalized hubs that group audio content together by particular themes like News, Music, Sports, and more.
“Now Twitter listeners will be able to easily access a more personalized selection of live and recorded Spaces discussing the topics that are most relevant to them.”
Amidst the Twitter podcast launch, recall that in the Elon Musk/Twitter brouhaha, Peiter Zatko, former Twitter personnel who had been sacked in January over poor performance had released an 84-page whistle-blower complaint revealing the lapses of the social media company, including its misinformation about bot accounts.
With the court trial over the completion of the $44 billion acquisition deal about two months away, this revelation could lead to a huge blow for the social networking company when squaring off with Musk at the Delaware Court on 17 October according to Zatko.
