Twitter and Periscope now allow audio-only live broadcasts
Twitter has just announced that both its apps – Twitter and Periscope will now allow users to go live without having to film themselves. The audio-only broadcasts are now rolling out for iOS devices, but Android users should get it soon as well, although Twitter didn't make any mention of it yet.
Sometimes you just want to talk, without being on camera. We’re launching audio-only broadcasting, so your followers can hear, but not see you.— Twitter (@Twitter) September 7, 2018

Besides adding audio-only live broadcasts, the Twitter app for iOS also gained a couple of other improvements and bug fixes that we've listed below:
- Improved how relevant events and broadcasts appear on top of your timeline;
- Fixed minor bugs around how Tweets render in different parts of the app;
- Fixed a bug affecting closed captions on event pages.
These are some pretty neat improvements aimed at Twitter and Periscope users, so make sure to download the latest versions of the apps if you want to go live without being seen by your followers.
