Twitter introduced a “buy” button last month that brought ecommerce directly to the mobile platform. So, what’s next for enhanced tweets?
The new Twitter Audio Card brings streaming music, podcasts, and audio content to the Android and iOS Twitter apps. SoundCloud is Twitter’s first audio card partner. Users can hit play on SoundCloud tracks and listen to them as they browse Twitter.
For now, only a limited number of SoundCloud partners have access to the feature, including Chance the Rapper and David Guetta, who used the feature to premiere new tracks on Twitter.
The audio card will roll out to other users over time.
