Rumor has it that Twitter is adding a “Podcasts” tab to the mobile app?

(Pocket-lint) – Could Twitter launch a podcasts tab in its mobile app in the near future?
That’s what Jane Manchun Wong – a security researcher identified in Forbe’s 30 Under 30 Social Media 2022 list – revealed via a Tweet (how’s that for harmony?).
This is precisely his job. As Forbes says: “[Wong] has amassed a devoted Twitter fanbase by discovering previously announced features on apps like Twitter, Instagram and Facebook through his intensive digital detective work.”

This source certainly lends further legitimacy to the claim – an image of which you can see in the screenshot of the embedded Tweet above, showing a new podcasts/microphone shortcut symbol at the bottom of the Twitter app.
Interestingly, the posted screenshot lacks the Twitter Spaces shortcut symbol, which might be a clue to where this feature is headed. Spaces already contains live content, of course, so could it be that all audio, including podcasts, is available through this new portal instead?
We’ll have to wait and see what, if anything, happens to Twitter’s mobile platforms in the near future. It’s an ever-evolving platform that has incorporated more and more tools over the years, so getting into podcasting does indeed make sense.
