Twitter gets in-line audio streaming via Audio Cards

Twitter is introducing a new feature to its Android and iOS apps today that will allow users to stream music directly from tweets within the app. Called the Audio Card, this new feature enables specific users to embed SoundCloud audio within their tweets, where users can then stream said audio while they continue to browse their feed.

Twitter says this is only the first of partnerships to come. However, partnering with SoundCloud is an interesting move from Twitter, as they reportedly passed on acquiring the streaming service earlier this year.

If you're excited about the idea of listening to your favorite podcasters as you browse your twitter feed, you can try the feature out on mobile apps now.

What do you think of Twitter's partnership with soundcloud? Are you excited to finally stream audio inside of the Twitter app?
